We decided that we'd better get to carving pumpkins if they were going to be ready to be lit up for Halloween night. Since Halloween fell on a Saturday, it saved our bacon this year! We didn't have a lot of time the week leading up to it, so we spent the afternoon carving.
Zander's pumpkin that he picked out was full of sprouting seeds! We've never seen anything like that before. It was pretty cool!
Crazy stuff right there!
It was nice that this year the kids are getting a little older and can handle more on their own. I only really had to help Eli and Lindey, and supervised or did touch up work on the other kid's pumpkins.
Zander carved his own face design.
Morgan found a squirrel! Right up her alley. :)
Micah carved one of the Teen Titans. He was pretty excited about it.
Lindey's little pumpkin turned into a sweet kitty cat.
We had a great time carving, and I, personally, am glad that's done! Whew! It's quite a project to get all 6 kid's pumpkins carved.
