Carving pumpkins

Good morning, it is Saturday.

Last night was pumpkin carving night! Preston decided he would rather hang out with friends than carve pumpkins with us...his loss. Maren, Hansen, Lillie and I went to Costco for some dinner and shopping then headed over to Safeway to pick out pumpkins! No pumpkin patch for us this year...this weekend is just too rainy, last weekend was just too is this one actually! Anyhow, we found a couple of nice and big pumpkins at Safeway and brought them home to carve. This year my roll had changed a bit. I was in charge of taking the tops off and gutting the pumpkins, thus getting them ready for the kids to carve:

Lillie picked her own pumpkin out, drew a clever cat with words "Boo" above and below, then carved it out all by herself! She was very happy with her first ever carved pumpkin, but for some reason didn't want any "after" photos with her masterpiece.
Hansen also picked out his pumpkin and spent a long time planning the perfect carving.

He went for the mirror opposite scary face. He didn't mind getting his picture taken with his pumpkin...but he wasn't putting down his ice cream either.

And here they are glowing in front of the house last night!

See you tomorrow.

The pumpkins look great, and so does the ice cream! Good job, Hansen and Lillie!
