Carving the Jack-O'-Lanterns
Two days before Halloween we carved the pumpkins. We don't do it any sooner than that because they will turn black and take on a life of their own! I gave the kids markers and they all designed jack-0'-lantern faces, which I roughly followed when I carved them (still no knives for the little ones).
Sammy really got into the whole process this year.
Sammy making the face he drew on his pumpkin.
Lucy did a great job this year with scooping out the seeds. She really got most of them out!
"My pumpkin has hair!"
Sammy wouldn't touch the "ick" in the center of his pumpkin. I had to scoop the whole thing out.
The Jack-0'-lanterns are lit!
