Carving Pumpkins

We carved pumpkins with the cousins at Grammie's house on Sunday.

Piper and Teague both chose huge pumpkins. Teague told me he wanted a medium pumpkin, so I was surprised when he chose the hugest one on the hay at Albertson's. Piper also chose a huge one.

When it came time to carve, both kidlets wanted to "brainstorm" so they got paper and pencils and started drawing faces for their pumpkins! Teague drew one picture: Square eyes, an arrow nose and a sharp toothed smile. Piper on the other hand drew about 20 faces and finally decided on ghost type eyes, a triangle nose and a vampire mouth.

My kidlets are just like their momma when it comes to sticky, dirty, nasty hands, so guess who got all the guts out of the pumpkins? Aaron did Teague's and I did Piper's, and I hated every second of it.

When all was said and done, the jack-o-laterns turned out great! We came home and immediately put them on the front porch.
