Carving Pumpkins

We usually like to get the carving done a week before Halloween. This year was different for a couple reasons. Benji and Spencer carved pumpkins last Friday for their school carnival so they weren't really itchin'. We have had something going on every night this week to prevent us from getting it done and Gary likes to participate so we couldn't do it during the day. So here we are, the night before, getting our spook on. Spencer and Benjamin both designed their own. Gary did Desirae's and I did Andrews. They all turned our very cute. It cracks me up every year, None of our boys want to touch the guts. We always make them, just for the pictures sake and to laugh at their faces. I though that Andrew would love it. He is to tactile oriented and he loves to squish and play with his food. But he was the most reluctant. This was the first year Desi was old enough to participate. She was so into it. As soon as she figured out what was going on she pulled up her sleeve and dug in. She loved it. She would grab a handful and shake it off into the bowl and go back for more. We finally had to make her stop because she was shaking goop all over the kitchen. So here's to a glowing Halloween. Hope you have a ooie, gooey, good, and safe one.

So much FUN!!!! All of the pumpkins turned out great! And look at it this way, carving them the night before Halloween means they are fresh and not rotten like everyone elses!

Happy Haunting to you too!
