Last night the kids carved their pumpkins. Carving pumpkins are a tradition in our home every year. We always have to put in It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown too!

This was the first year where the kids did everything themselves. They washed their pumpkin, then they drew out on paper what they wanted the face of their pumpkin to look like, then they cut the top off and cleaned out their pumpkin. Now this is where it is quite interesting....the Princess just jumps in getting all of the goo out and putting it in her bowl. The Bookworm decided heck NO was he touching the yucky goo, he disappeared and came back in the room with big yellow rubber gloves on! Oh yes, he did, it was all the Hubby and I could do NOT to laugh! The Bookworm was content with his gloves and went right on with cleaning out his pumpkin. They both finished cleaning out the goo in their pumpkins and then they drew their faces on their pumpkins and then they carved the faces out. NO we didn't let them use knives, they used the little pumpkin carver kit knives, very safe.

All in all.....2 hours later, they were finished with their master pieces. They did a very good job and they did it all by themselves. They were both very proud.

I love this time of the year.....Fall. I love to see the leaves changing colors and then fall to the ground, I love to see the orange of the pumpkins and all of the Fall colors.

And guess what people, Halloween is the start to the Holidays....yes, that's right, in just 3 days it'll be that time of the year again! Are you getting ready!?
