Pictures and Pumpkins

Last night we carved our pumpkins! Every year we always do them too soon and the ended up rotting horribly by Halloween, so this year we decided to wait a few extra days before digging in. Kay REALLY loves Halloween and couldn't wait to carve her pumpkin! So I set up shop on our patio and we got to carving..

Daddy cut the top off for her

And she dug right in
We always collect our pumpkin seeds so we can roasted them...although Kay was confused and thought I was going to make a pie! Boy was she wrong...she should know by now that mommy is so not a baker. Needless to say she was very meticulous while cleaning out her pumpkin.

DH doing his dirty work...

And boy was he dirty...boys...

She really wanted her pumpkin to have a scary face, but we had no patterns that were scary enough for her liking. She waited patiently while daddy mapped out her pattern.

AND...ta-da....the final product! Ironically enough, mine was the tall skinny one! We all had a chuckle about that seeing how I am walking around with a nice big pumpkin size belly : )

And last but not least, a picture of the sunset from our deck. Beautiful!

Your pumpkins look great! Love the view of the sunset as well. Must be so nice sitting on your deck. Happy Halloween!
