Pumpkin Carving

Last night for family night we decided to go to the Pumpkin Walk. We got there and there was a line through the walk, out the door, down the sidewalk, and to the street. We decided to pick up pumpkins, hot chocolate and cinnamon rolls instead.

Simon fell asleep on the way home so he missed out on the party last night so he missed out on the fun.

Liam thought it was the most disgusting thing to reach into a pumpkin and pull out the "guts".

Grace did a lot of planning for her pumpkin. She was quiet most of the time looking at the side of the pumpkin wondering what to choose and waiting her turn with Dad and the knife. That of course didn't stop her from posing for a picture...guts and all!

Patrick did his own thing. He is old enough to wield a knife. He did manage to poke himself in the thigh but it was just a prick and blood and Halloween go together so no real harm done! (He is OK, it was just a little poke)

This morning after we took Liam to school it was Simon's turn to carve. I don't have any pictures of the process since I was the master carver but we lined them all up on the porch. He looks so proud of himself!!

From left to right the pumpkins go, Liam's, Grace's, Patrick's, Simon's and the man himself!!

It was a fun family night and everyone is now ready to light the way into Halloween!

Um, Patrick's looks like him! :) How fun! I was just telling my mother that my house is lacking pumpkins. MUST PURCHASE PUMPKINS! Remind me.
