Carving The Pumpkin

Happy Halloween! A couple of weeks ago we carved our Jack-O-Lantern. I have always loved carving pumpkins, but the older I get, the less I enjoy getting my hands dirty. Shaun did most of the work this time.

Spencer was excited!

And Ethan was too, but this is one of I think two times he stuck his hand in the pumpkin. He doesn't love getting his hands dirty either. He spent most of the time "mixing" the seeds that were on the table with a spoon.

Spencer enjoyed playing with...

and tasting the leftover pumpkin. (And, yes, he does wear that shirt a lot.)

And here's the final product. Ethan designed the eyes. I designed the nose. Shaun designed the mouth and tweaked my nose design (it was supposed to be an oval). Isn't he cute?

Very cute! I love how excited Spencer is. We are lame parents, and never got around to carving this year.

Well, I guess you are least lame sister because I didn't do jack-o-lanterns this year either. Yours is very cute. It looks like they had a great time!
