Pumpkin Carvings

We carved our pumpkins tonight! The kids were soooo excited! Sometimes I forget how Halloween ranks nearly as high as Christmas for kids. The sheer joy of dressing up and getting a seemingly endless supply of sugary candy is bliss for kids. And then there's the added adventure of going out into the dark night, into a world formerly so familiar and streets normally travelled during daylight walks to the park ... now transformed into something glittering and mysterious -- an entire new world, with hundreds of spooky friends to share it with! I, for one, am seriously looking forward to tomorrow evening! Happy Halloween everyone!

Rhy's pumpkin -- a spooky skeleton face.

Asher's pumpkin, carved by me -- a mummy!

Gabe's pumpkin, carved by Nate ... a spooky pumpkin scarecrow!

Rhy woke up from her nap while the boys were carving and I couldn't help but snap this super cute photo of her all rumpled and sleep-kissed!

Rhy thinks to herself "You want me to do WHAT??" She was NOT happy at the idea of sticking her hand inside a gooey pumpkin.

My cute boys workin' hard on gutting their pumpkins.

Asher must have used the word "GROSS!" about 1,000 times while we were doing this. But he still kept workin' like a champ.

Gabe guts his pumpkin.

Nate scares Asher with the pumpkin guts.

The boys with their lovely pumpkins!

That looks like fun. We still need to carve our pumpkins. Yikes. I hate gutting pumpkins, too. Carving is much more fun!
