Pumpkins pumpkins pumpkins

As promised, here are photos of the children and their pumpkins.

We bought one of those pumpkin carving kits, and the Princess used one of those stencils.  Unfortunately both of the saws that came with the kit broke long before she was finished.  But we happen to have two pumpkin carving knives purchased from Pampered Chef years ago, and she managed to muddle through with that.

We think the pumpkin monster kind of looks like Domo.  What do you think?

The C-man went with a more traditional approach, and drew his design onto the pumpkin with a marker before he started hacking away.  It’s a werewolf.

And here is my pumpkin.  It has been de-gooped but it is still blank.  And it will probably remain so.  I don’t know what kind of medication I was taking that made me think I would have time to carve a pumpkin.  Anyway, doesn’t it look fabulous?

And on a side note, I have informed the children that this is the last year I will be de-gooping pumpkins free of charge.  Next year they can do it themselves.

  1. There definitely comes a time when the children must be responsible for their own degooping! Amanda tried to bargain her way out of it for as long as possible.
