Pumpkin Carving

We have 3 big, beautiful pumpkins that have just been waiting to be carved into jack-o-lanterns. We really have not had a chance to carve them, and we didn't want to carve them too early for fear of them rotting--not a pretty sight! Finally last night we had the opportunity to dive into our pumpkins as a family. First Daddy cut the tops off, and Caitlin and Harrison scooped out all the yucky goo.

We saved the pumpkin seeds for roasting. Yummy:)
Then Daddy set to work carving the patterns that the kids had picked for each pumpkin.

And here are the finished products...

It was a fun time even if the kids stayed up way too late (isn't that what memories are made of?).
