pumpkin carving

After picking the perfect pumpkins, it was time to carve them (and by that I mean pick out a really fun pattern and watch daddy do all the work). 

Isabel remembered carving pumpkins last year but the more we talked about it, the more I realized that Will remembered nothing and had no idea what we were about to do.  When Josh first took the top off the first pumpkin and we told Will to put his hand in.....this was his reaction.  Yes, sympathetic mother that I am, I took a picture and laughed at first.
I'm not sure what he was worried about but fortunately he got over it really quickly

Isabel was willing to stick her hand in one time.  This is how she felt about having "pumpkin guts" on her hands!

It is always more fun to just play with the insides after daddy did all the work of getting it out.

Isabel and Will found a crayon in with the pumpkin carving tools and wanted to write their names on a different pumpkin

Pumpkin carving is fun for about 5 minutes when you are 3 and 5.  Then they got bored watching daddy work so they decided to swing for a while instead.

The finished products: superman and zebra pumpkins
