Carving Jack-O-Lanterns

During our visit to the pumpkin patch, we picked two perfect pumpkins for us to carve.

The other night we decided it would be a great time to carve them. I took the pumpkins outside for the "cleaning of the guts" because it is just so messy.

Audrey got busy scraping and pulling out the guts. Addison started out with her spoon and dug in...then she felt those guts on her hand. She was NOT happy. She started fussing, threw her spoon down and said "no, no, no". Addison chose not to touch those pumpkins again.

Audrey instructed me on what the faces should look like and I drew the designs on each pumpkin. Corey did the carving since I'm not all that safe with knives. I tend to cut myself often. :/

The pumpkins turned out pretty cute and the kids loved them especially once we got the super-cool lights put inside.

Audrey was so proud of her work. Addison was grumpy because she didn't want any part of taking this photo.
