To end our fun Halloween weekend, we all carved our pumpkins this evening. Usually an outside activity, we decided we'd rather stay warm and carve our pumpkins in the kitchen instead. The kids were pretty excited and each had their own ideas of how they wanted their pumpkins carved.
First things first, though....dig out the guts!
Carving was mostly the job of the adults, but Allie drew her own face on her pumpkin's surface and Zach drew inspiration from my search of Google images for "jack o lantern ideas." Due to Olivia's love of all things Mickey and Minnie, we decided she needed a Mickey silhouette on her baby pumpkin.
The kids were thrilled with the final result.
And right before bed time, we made sure to go outside and view our pumpkins in all their glowing glory.
