Tonight we carved our first official pumpkin as a family, and I couldn't be happier. We didn't bother last year since she was only a few months old, but I was deterimined to do it this year. And you know what? It's a lot harder to carve that thing than I remember! But we managed and the pumpkin ROCKS!
Here we are trying to pick out a face for our pumpkin
And I'm trying to draw it on the pumpkin
She wasn't very willing to share her pen with me, though. She's trying to trade me for a sharpie! :)
And now so SAD! Ahhhh. the emotional highs and lows of a toddler...
I know..this looks scarier than it was :)
I was excited to see if she's get her hands in the pumpkin and pull out seeds, and she didn't disappoint me!!!!
She wasnt'w squeamish at all about pumpkin guts!
I really don't remember the carving part being this hard!!!
Here's Joacim trying to be all fancy schmantzy with the camera again, not aiming (but he DID get a pretty good one this time!)
She was interested for awhile, but then got bored with the whole pumpking thing, so she decided to draw us some pictures...
I think Murphy's just wondering when this will all be over so we can play
btw...it's his BIRTHDAY tomorrow!!!!! He'll be 4 years old, and he's got some GREAT gifts coming his way!!!
We definitely turned this thing into a family affair, with Murphy right in the mix of things!
Now she interested again
Our first jack o' lantern!!
All lit up!
