We thought JT was going to have a lot of fun with pulling the guts of the pumpkins out. He loves to get messy, has been talking up the pumpkins for weeks, and he's quite adventurous. Well, we were WRONG!
John did the "Daddy job" of cutting out lids for our Jack O Lanterns
JT looked pretty excited at seeing the pulp hanging down....
This shot captures a bit of apprehension over the whole situation now...
John was a super sweet Daddy and talked to JT about the insides of the pumpkin to JT. He didn't force JT to touch it, but he himself grabbed a handful to show JT it wasn't going to hurt him or be afraid of. JT's response? "No thanks, yuck, gross!" He then climbed down and happily played with cars until we finished.Maybe next year.
Lindsay and her tall pumpkin
Courtney chose a shorter, round pumpkin.
Lots of seeds in Lindsay's
Scoop it out!
We have used the Pumpkin Master's carving kit for such a long time now. Makes for much "prettier" designs. Lindsay poking her design into her pumpkin.
Courtney ready with her ghosts.
The finished trio (John's pumpkin rotted before we carved it and no photos of me because I was not camera ready)
