Pumpkin Carving

Last night we went out to eat at Logan's. Yum. Megan declared that we needed to celebrate the fact that she's done with soccer. I'll celebrate that. We had a good meal there. Then we ran to Walmart to get a few things and some pumpkins. I really wanted to do the pumpkin patch thing but there was no way I was taking all three by myself and then they wouldn't help out with their chores so it got nixed. Maybe next year.



Mickey said something this afternoon about needing to get them carved tonight because we will be busy the next three nights and then what's the point in doing it after Halloween? The kids were very excited. I should have gotten some video but before I knew it I was immersed up to my elbows in pumpkin innards. I ended up cleaning and carving two. Megan pretty much did her own. And Mickey worked on his own piece of art. I have pictures of everyone's but Mickey's. He didn't finish. Happy Halloween! (Just in case I don't post again before Wednesday.)

Thanks for the post Sweetheart! The pumpkins look cool all lit up.

Nice pumpkins! I'm not sure I could identify all the features on Megan's, but they were all cute.

She did get a little carried away. She finished and I think she was bored or just wanted to keep cutting. Then there are some innards hanging down which make it harder to tell what it's supposed to be.

Megan cracks me up! That's one cool pumpkin! Yours are great too Kelly! Can't wait to see Mickey's artwork. . . although it looked like he was using a cheat sheet there. . . ??

Yeah I did start out with a cheat sheet but ended up drawing part of it free handed. Oh well it probably doesn't matter since I don't foresee any free time in the future to finish this art project.
