carving the pumpkin

mason could not wait until halloween to carve his pumpkin. he was so excited to make it into a scarecrow. we bought one of those carving kits that comes with a pattern book and he really wanted to make the scarecrow. miles did the carving and mason was the helper. he was so funny saying he wanted to pull the pumpkin guts out and then dropping the spoon saying "yuck, it's all slobbery." dahlia wanted nothing to do with the pumpkin guts. she kept saying messy and screaming while she ran away. i used to love to pull out the pumpkin guts. that was the best part. what wimpy kids i have. of course they both loved looking at the glowing pumpkin. the holidays are getting fun around here.

pumpkin guts used to freak me out too. The carving looks awesome! Glad Mason enjoyed the festivities.
