Pumpkin Carving

While I was at the retreat, Mark and the girls carved our pumpkins that we grew.
I was thrilled, because I'm not a lover of the mess that goes along with this fun time!

















I think they did a really good job and the girls were really proud of their pumpkins!

Those are some massive pumpkins. They look good though.

very cool! here's a neat little trick I read in some parenting magazine or something. if you cut your circle out of the bottom of the pumpkin you can cut a smooth surface to set the candle on, it also makes it easier to light and you never have to worry about the tid falling in.

I don't blame you for wanting to be out of the house for this - I couldn't stand the smell either as well as the mess! The pumpkins turned out great though! Good job girls... & Mark! :)
