Over the past month I collected some great ideas for pumpkin carving.
Afton drew a face on her pumpkin and then I carved it according to her "directions". She calls is 'The Boooo-Faced Pumpkin'.
Jeff took over Maisy's pumpkin. He was working towards a 'Frankenstein' look. But Maisy calls it 'A Happy Pumpkin' :)
I don't think Martha Stewart will be calling us anytime soon. My grand plans for fancy pumpkin dissolved over handfuls of 'pumpkin guts', seeds, and giggles. The girls actually ended up running around the yard and Jeff and I had a little pumpkin carving date. Even though they will never-ever be the most 'pinned' pumpkins on the web. I am delighted with them, because these pumpkins looks like us-- perfectly imperfect and happy!
And since it has still been warm around here and I didn't want moldy pumpkins, our jack-o-lanterns have been sitting in our garage fridge instead of our front porch.
"Pumpkins chilling out til Halloween"-- this is fall in North Texas!
Have you carved your pumpkins yet?
