Carving Pumpkins

This is the first year we have carved pumpkins. Before this year, paint was our friend. Here are two pumpkins the kids pumpkins at the Bergjso's party. The rain had smeared the paint on part of the pumpkins and we decided to carve these.
Cooper was becoming one with his pumpkin! What a sweet face!!!Cadence loved her pumpkin!!!
With the child-safe knives I bought from the dollar store, we went to work carving the pumpkins. Both Cooper and Cadence liked the ooey, gooey insides!!!
Cadence HAD to cut, cut, cut the pumpkin pieces!!! Look at that concentration - Her tongue is sticking out!
"This hole is really cool. I like to lift the lid on and off."
By far the most awesome part of the night was when we put a candle in the pumpkins and they became "jack-o-laterns." The kids eyes lit up with excitement. They loved shining the flashlight down the pumpkins and watching the face lite up. This continued for many nights!!!

The finished product! We will definitely be carving pumpkins every Halloween now!
