Sunday afternoon we carved our pumpkins! We had quite a few to carve and the kids were so excited to help. In reality they were more excited about the knives and carving tools we had to use. That makes carving pumpkins with a 3 and 4 year old a little stressful at times. ha! I just knew a finger would be chopped off at some point during all of this but I'm happy to say, we all made it through alive! In actuality, Adam and I carve all the pumpkins while the kids run around and play. They help for a bit but once they (more like Landon) realize they won't get to use a knife, they are over it. They weren't too keen on scraping out all the pumpkin guts either. ha! Maybe they will like it better next year. ;)
notice the rain boot on the wrong foot?
(You can see Adalyn in the background sorting her change. hahaha
Who cares that we have pumpkins, she's concerned about getting her money in order!
Just like her momma lol)
See his tongue? lol You can tell he wasn't too sure of it!
Adam explaining to Adalyn that he was going to put potting soil in one of our pumpkins and plant some flowers in it.
And that was all his idea- he didn't even resort to Pinterest!
See the tiny pumpkin carving tool in his hand? They enjoyed poking holes all throughout the pumpkins with it. haha
Adam then brought out his drill and Landon was all over helping in that way. They put small holes in one and larger holes in another pumpkin.
The finished product!
I asked Landon if he wanted his pumpkin to have circle or triangular eyes and he chose circle.
I kind of like the look!
It was such a WARM October afternoon- great day to carve our pumpkins!
Here's a sneak peak back into the past...
Sooo cute huh?!
