Monday night was our annual " Newman family pumpkin carving party". Earlier that day the girls and I brought them in to get them all ready. First I cut the top off and let the girls take a peek inside.
She wrestled off the lid.
Saw what was inside...
and then smelled it. She wasn't impressed.
It is funny how every year even I am still caught off by just how gross it is to clean out a pumpkin. It just doesn't get easier girls, sorry. I tried to convince her to stick her hand in and clean it out. She just wasn't having it.
I printed off several face options and let them choose their own pumpkins face.
Don't even ask because I don't have a clue. I think she was admiring how clean the inside of her pumpkin was.
"Take a picture mom!" Ummm, okay!
Marissa really wanted to try out tracing the face on. I think she lasted about 10 seconds before asking me to finish it up.
And then she grabbed my phone and took this picture. I REALLY hope Emily wasn't licking the pumpkin. Whatever they were doing, they thought it was hysterical.
Later that night when Dad came home we sat down at the table together and carved this years pumpkins.
I do believe they turned out pretty well!
We're almost done now. If only I could find a leaf pile to play in.
