We finally decided to carve the pumpkins that we picked at the pumpkin patch. We had to do it early since one of the pumpkins had a little bruised spot that looked like it was going to rot soon.

So here’s our first attempt at carving pumpkins for our family. I hope you get a good laugh out of  my lack of artistic ability.

We decided not to save the pumpkin seeds this time…maybe next year we can.


Princess said she wanted a “happy face” on her pumpkin. I was to lazy to make teeth for the smile. That’ll have to wait until next year too.

Putting the candle in wasn’t too easy since I didn’t cut a big enough opening on top…oh well, it worked anyway.

All lit up in the dark…so cool! The girls loved it!

Princess said she wanted Baby’s pumpkin (the oblong one) to have a sad face. Hmmm…I wonder why? Mr. MaD said we should do this instead.

Happy Halloween from our family to yours!
