Yesterday we went to Grandma’s house for a special surprise – Punkins! The kids were so excited about their own little pumpkins and wanted to come straight home and carve them. However, it was too late and I promised them when Julian came home from school today we would have a carving party.
We had a superb time! We found some templates online and printed them off and the fun began. .
We set about for a long afternoon of carving – or let’s say that I did.
The boys dug right in helping scoop out the goopy stuff. Evely had fun piling it all back inside the punkins.
I was very surprised at how well the boys did on the carving. Julian carved about 90% of his. Jaden really worked hard on his too. He did all the eyes and part of the rest.
I love Evely’s wrinkly nose. She makes this look a lot and I finally captured it on the camera!
Hard at work. The kids were such a help this year. In the past I usually ended up alone at the table carving and carving. This year they finished with me! I can tell that next year will be even more fun. I love parts of this “growing up” stuff!
All finished! Evely’s is a cat if you can’t tell. The boys picked out semi-scary faces.
