Pumpkin Guts

Carving pumpkins is one of my favorite family activities: its neck 'n neck with dying Easter eggs. I love the dilemna of what type of face to draw, i love the kid's faces when they first stick their hand inside the "guts", i love what hard work it is to scrape out and carve the perfect grin....

I love the mess of it all...
I love that Avery insisted that NO ONE help her this year... and how she kept repeating "Yep, I'm still carvin' my punkin all by myself, with NO help from anyone!"
Hunter's was a pirate with a patch over one eye.
And Davin's was a man with a mustache, but the funny thing was when we put the candle inside it began to look like Hulk Hogan... you'll see....
My favorite part is the smell coming from the oven right now...ummm... roasted pumpkin secret recipe... shhhh... don't tell anyone (soy sauce and olive oil) its the best!

So cute and fun. Our family has to do a post-Halloween carving because of Rich's schedule- but they won't know.

Looking forward to our pizza party- trick or treating night tomorrow.

Congratulations Santa!
