Pumpkin Carving


Near the end of Marvelous Monday, after friends went home and dinner came to an end (and apparently I folded laundry on the counter- the best laundry folding area in my house) we brought out our pumpkins and started to carve.

Another year of home grown pumpkins! We actually grew 8 (2 more than I’d hoped even!). We discovered that one pumpkin was moldy on the inside, one pumpkin got ruined while carving, so I was glad we’d grown extra! I’d learned about hand pollinating this spring and made sure we’d grow enough!

Some children reveled in the goo.

More than one child was repulsed.

Either way we all got to work and had fun!

It was fun to see the things they’d sketched onto the pumpkins come to life!

Cayden, Ashlyn, Dylan, Jackson, Alison and Megan’s pumpkins.

Megan’s pumpkin is Pinkie Pie (My Little Pony)! This was my first year getting into carving! Usually I’m the “de-gutter.”

Ashlyn discovered that a lighted pumpkins casts its shape into the wall!

A great night with great kids!
