Carving pumpkins

After our trip to Amazing Acres, Jess wanted a few of her friends help her carve her pumpkin. So that is what they did. We sat her pumpkin in the back yard, and away they went.

However, pulling out the guts and scrapping the sides is as far as they got. Jessica wanted to save the rest for our traditional family carving! So Sunday night, we did the remaining pumpkins.










...and the finished pumpkins....




Jessica's
Who always steps outside the box


Delaney

Who wanted her's to look like the plastic pumpkins that she is using to go trick-or-treating





Sean's

not much different than Delaney's just a square nose instead of triangle:





Owen's

Whose is just like Sean's (they are twins, after all) only with a scar face





They all have strobe lights in them, so it was hard to get a picture of all of them lit up at the same time. Tonight, when it gets dark, I will try to take a video of them.

What fun! I can't wait until the kids are a bit older so we can carve pumpkins without the fear of accidentally carving KIDS ...
