Carving pumpkins

Good morning, it is Thursday.

Last night was pumpkin carving night. We bought two medium sized pumpkins and let the arguing begin. What to carve, who to carve, when to carve, buy or sell, m&m's or skittles. Lillie and Maren chose a fun cat that I thought I could carve, and Hansen chose a wolf that he thought he could carve. Preston opted for soccer practice. Lillie and Hansen were a very good audience of grossness when I was emptying the guts of the pumpkin. Then we used a template, then drew on the design, then carved away. I helped Hansen with the drawing, but he did all the carving of his pumpkin. The pictures were too bright with the flash, too dark without.

Hansen carving out his wolf pumpkin.

Lillie giving kissie faces to her cat pumpkin.

Hansen posing with his wolf pumpkin. Lillie's feet off to the left...no, we can't just get a normal picture in this house.

Both pumpkins on display. Tomorrow night they will have candles in them and they should look very cool.

See you tomorrow.

Hansen did a pretty amazing carving job - that takes a lot of patience! And Lillie giving the kitty kissy faces is great.
