Pumpkin Carving!

Dinoguy did not like putting his hand in the pumpkin.
Helpful Fixitman cleaned out the pumpkins for the boys while I threw dinner together.
Trainboy needed some help with the carver - not quite enough strength.
Dinoguy needed help getting his design like he wanted too.
Yay for our pumpkins!

Boys have been wanting to carve pumpkins this year. Seeing how the weather is just barely starting to turn cooler, there aren't many Texas based pumpkins around, and all the pumpkin maze/farm places seem to truck them in even. Ours came from a farm in Indiana according to the label.

They aren't quite able to cut what they want from the pumpkins so it was a family helping activity, but they were thrilled to have their designs make it onto the pumpkins and be lit up!

Hopefully the pumpkins will survive until Halloween, we are having a bit of cooler weather this week. For now, they are sitting outside guarding our house! :)

Pumpkins are a good time. I think we need to carve ours soon!

My kiddos carved their first pumpkins this year, too. They loved it. Like you, there was a significant amount of parental assistance involved. :-)
Though, I have to say, I really enjoyed it, too. :-)

The boys' pumpkins look awesome!
