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!
