The Pumpkins:8:17 AM
Friday night we FINALLY got around to carving pumpkins! I almost thought we’d have to skip this year because we hadn’t managed to find the time to do it. But, Jake and I decided to forego our date night and stay home with the kids to carve. We do love it after all!
Ashelyn was such a trooper! She dug all kinds of gross pumpkin guts, tried to eat them and then smeared them all over everything. We laid plastic down on the floor, but I still ended up with a disgusting mess to clean!
What on earth is inside that thing!? (Gideon was asleep for all the “prep” time, so I don’t have any pictures of him digging in the guts…)
But, here is Gid-Man with his finished pumpkin! Jake just free-handed it. I think it turned out so cute!
Here’s a shot of both of the kids’. Ashelyn’s was so cute with the big A and polka-dots all the way around. The picture doesn’t do it justice.
I did the spider web, Jake did the “Zombie Viking”, and because I just couldn’t resist how hilarious and ridiculous it was (and we had an extra pumpkin)… Jake carved Bella and Edward for me! Haha! That’s love right there! :)
Because I’m sure you needed a close up…. You’re welcome world.
