Pumpkin Carving!

Pumpkin Time!  

 This year I was able to participate in the pumpkin carving festivities!  Last year I was so sick I was barely able to take pictures from the couch.  Ugh!  I also missed Trick-or-treat.

 Because of the growing number of children, we've decided to have a family pumpkin that everyone contributes to.  In the past everyone picked out their own.  The kids did each get a pumpkin from a local (free!) church event, which was really fun, but they are too small to really carve.  I picked up this beautiy for $1.99 at ALDI.  Got to love ALDI.
 I think this is one of my favorite pictures of the boys.  It just totally shows how they interact.  Right on top of each other.
 I noticed after I took this picture that LMM was indeed sitting ON the table.  I guess he was as wrapped up in the carving as I was and he crawled himself right up.
 Eyes were Rosebud's pick, nose was LMM and mouth was Snug. I think that #1 did a great job carving.
Um.  Yeah.  We let her sample the guts.  She liked it  :o)  I'm not surprised as she loves squash and sweet potatoes.  Wait till she discovers there is pumpkin PIE! 
So here is our family pumpkin with all the little pumpkin friends.  Don't be fooled, the large pumpkin in the back is a faker.  It is foam  :o)
