Carving Pumpkins

After picking pumpkins this past Saturday, the girls came home & immediately asked if they could carve them. As we love to watch them carving pumpkins, we got started.

It was pretty cool out (despite the fact that Amanda's wearing shorts....she's a little strange), but they loved digging all the goop out. And of course they had to play with it a bit!

Amanda carved a silhouette of a cat & moon into her pumpkin, while Dan & Emilee chose to carve funny-faced jack-o-lanterns. The pumpkins turned out awesome, and are currently lit on our front porch.

You know, I never used to care whether we carved pumpkins or not. But now that the girls are getting older, it's a lot of fun. I love to watch them pick out their pumpkins (gotta get just the right one) and ponder over what design to carve each year. I really look forward to it now!

Enjoy the pics!

This weekend we plan to make caramel apples (hopefully!). Stay tuned to see how that goes!
