301/365...Pumpkin Carving Day joy

Yippee!!! Pumpkin Carving Day!!

How I loved watching each of my children's reactions to this experience.

I gave each of the kids a dry erase marker to draw a face on their pumpkin. Of course, I wasn't expecting the youngest two to do that.

The baby of them all wasn't quite sure what to even do with the marker.

After watching his siblings for a bit, he quickly figured it out.

Hmmm... who gave him the permanent Sharpee?

My baby girl was so serious about making her pumpkin's face... and hair... and ears... and legs....

My oldest little man was fairly grossed out about taking out the seeds and gunk from inside the pumpkin. Once he got the hang of it, he took off his shirt and was elbow deep in the pumpkin.

He now wants to carve pumpkins every night.

Good ol' pumpkin guts. The twins were completely grossed out by the stuff. Baby girl and the oldest could have bathed in it.

And the results...

I helped them out a bit.

I think this is a day that the kids will always remember... and so will I.

Pumpkin Carving Day joy.

We hope to carve on Saturday! I wish I had my camera back though. Going back to an entry level camera (and it's crapola lenses) is the pits! These are the little things that I hope the kids will always remember. Is this a tradition at your house?
