Pumpkin Carving

With just a couple of days left before Halloween, the boys and I decided it was time to finally carve our pumpkins.

First we cleaned out each pumpkin.  We all know the boys enjoy getting their hands dirty so this is one of their favorite parts of carving, pulling out all those seeds.

It's a messy job but someone has to do it.

After searching for the perfect template, it was time to get to carving.  Every year I say the same thing, these templates always look easy nut seem to take twice as long to create.

Here are our final creations...Rylan decided on a Ghost pumpkin  and Holden chose to make his a Dracula pumpkin.

Typical we would have lit these outside but it was cold, windy, and rainy.  Instead we lit the pumpkins inside.  At last, here they are all aglow.

Happy Halloween Eve!
