This was the first year we attempted to actually carve the pumpkins with the kids, last year we just had Carson paint one which was fine. But I grew up carving pumpkins as a family, so I wanted that with my little family, Robert said that was my job then ;) He doesn't care much for this tradition.
It took a moment, before Carson stuck his hands in to get the pumpkins seeds, he finally decided he would much rather have a spoon.
Sydni on the other hand, jumped right up on the table( she is our climber) and grabbed a spoon and went to town on the pumpkin, despite me carving that particular pumpkin at the time.
We let Carson choose the faces for our pumpkin, the 1st was a happy face, and Daddy carved the "mean" faced pumpkin.
I can never get enough of his cheesy face!
Our little pumpkin cleaner at her best!
The best part, the pumpkin seeds. After the kids went to sleep I promptly made them into pumpkin seeds!
We ended with a ghost pumpkin(white), a Witch pumpkin( the green pumpkin with bumps), a "happy pumpkin, and a "mean" pumpkin and a successful family night!
