Pumpkin Carving Time!

Yesterday the kids didn't have school so we put that time to good use! Our sweet and precious Winnie (aka the best sister in world, Jenna) set up the perfect pumpkin carving event for all 4 of our kiddos. They each picked out the pumpkin that spoke to them at Central Market and couldn't wait to get started. They drew the design first and then the hard part came in where Winnie and I took over with the large butcher knives.

Then the kids dug out each pumpkin saving the seeds to roast later.

Grae was a pro at saving the seeds for roasting.

Will was not so impressed with the texture.

Our two pumpkins have there own little perch on our porch and last night were lit with candles inside. The boys were amazed at their finished product. As Grae said it best, "Mom...I am a really good Pumpkin maker." What a great start to Fall!
