Making Mud Pie
We usually go to the pumkin patch to get our jack-o-lantern pumpkins, but a funeral and unpleasant weather changed those plans this year. So, we visited the glamorous Wal-Mart pumpkin stash instead.
Granny and Poppy came over this afternoon for the Big Carve. Katherine was thrilled - carving jack-o-lanterns (and playing in pumpkin guts) is one of her very favorite activities.
Kate wanted to carve her own pumpkin, but discovered that she needed a little help - her pumkin had incredibly thick skin.
She was quite pleased with her finished jack-o-lantern!
Rachel was happy to let Granny carve her pumpkin. She is not a fan of pumpkin guts...
She prefers the use-a-big-spoon-to-scoop method.
Rachel had very specifc ideas for what Granny was to carve. Drawing the features was a must. As was making some part a circle. And vampire teeth.
She was proud of her fanged, slime-free pumpkin. (Oh, the black scribbles near the top are "hair"!)
Happy Pumpkin Time!
