I must admit I don't really "get" Halloween. However, it does have some fun traditions involved with it. So why not make the most of it right?
Last year we never got around to carving a pumpkin. I got ridiculed for this one. No one could seem to believe that an Art Teacher wouldn't have her kids carving pumpkins. I had no real excuse. We just never got around to it.
This year however we carved a pumpkin!
They were a little less impressed by the 'guts' of the pumpkin.
They were each eager to try scooping out the insides but quickly passed the torch on to Daddy.
Maybe next year we will let them each have their own pumpkin... Baby steps right? Over all they were excited to see the results and thrilled to put a candle in it.
Simple but beautiful!
