This is the first year we’ve carved pumpkins. And by we, I mean my husband. He carved while each kid sat by his side watching. I’ve never carved a pumpkin myself, but I loved watching them watch their daddy while I cooked supper one night. They were so intrigued. Bella was a little too intrigued by the knife and kept trying to swipe it. Bryson asked for a “Buckaroo” Pumpkin, so Justin drew out a cowboy then carved it. I thought he did a great job. He carved a peace sign for Bella. We’ll continue our tradition of painting pumpkins each year and now we’ll add in a few carved ones too.
I found these cool pumpkin lights at Kmart. One changes colors and the other has a spooky flicker- very neat!
