Last night we carved pumpkins with two of our friends, to get into the "Halloween Spirit" since it's right around the corner.  I hadn't carved a pumpkin in quite awhile and forgot one of the most important steps - carve the top at a an angle to keep the stem from falling in.  Whoops!

Anyway, this is how the night progressed...

Step 1:  Gut

Step 2:  Sketch

Step 3:  Make (and eat) pumpkin seeds

Step 4:  Explain to the pups why they don't get to eat pumpkin seeds

Step 5: Carve

Step 6:  Share stories!

Step 7:  And Marvel at our finished products

  1. Looks like you all had such a good time! Wish we could have joined. We took situations like this for granted when we lived in Oklahoma and now I wish we had not. Stacy's tummy is so big now! WOW!

  2. How fun! I haven't carved pumpkins in ages...next year Violet will probably want to. This year we just used stickers, LOL! Oh, and I did a small update just for you!
