Carving Pumpkins

We finished our Halloween preparation by carving a pumpkin last weekend.   When we went to Kellers farmstand we each picked our own pumpkin with intentions to carve our own, but we have some very hungry squirrels in our yard!  Luckily, we still had one good pumpkin that the squirrels didn’t completely destroy. I can’t remember ever having pumpkins eaten by squirrels but this year almost all of our pumpkins have been eaten through. Sometimes I wish I had a good squirrel launcher.

Carter wasn’t too interested in touching the “guts” but had a good time helping mom scoop them out with a spoon. I think Julie might have had more fun than Carter getting all the guts out. I know I sure had fun drawing and cutting the Carter approved face out. He had a blast and was cracking up a majority of the time. This was a first for us that will surely become an annual tradition. Next year we’re just going to have to keep our pumpkins hidden from the squirrels!
