Pumpkin Carving

After going pumpkin picking we had to carve our pumpkin.  We picked a nice big one to carve and we waited until the week before Halloween to carve it.  This was Emily and Juliette’s first year carving a pumpkin.  Both of the girls and Mommy too, were very excited and had fun helping.

Daddy cut the top off so that we could see what was inside.

Me: Wow what is in there? (Expecting seeds as the answer)

Emily: Spaghetti (In a not so excited tone)

Juliette had to go first because Emily was not so sure about it!

Looks great! We didn't do carvings this year but we did paint our pumpkin for trunk or treat at church. We'll be carving for sure next year.

I did't know she had a secret power that involved fire. The pumpkin looks great. JDaniel didn't want to touch the pumpkin guts.
