Carving our Pumpkin

To be honest, I enjoy going to pick out our pumpkin each year more than I enjoy the carving of it. I think we all actually feel that way. Poor Zach ends up doing the entire thing himself every year b/c the kids just are NOT into it. See why we only carve ONE pumpkin??? Plus, it’s SO warm down here that they rot MEGA fast. We have to wait to carve it a couple days prior to Halloween just so it won’t rot prior to trick or treating. Kinda takes the fun out of it when you can only enjoy it for a couple days, ya know?

    I saw something on fb about how to keep a pumpkin from rotting. It's probably on pinterest too. I remember it required putting the carved pumpkin in a bucket of something lol. Google it! Maybe you can make your pumpkin last a little longer!

    Hi Emily! You have really beautiful family. And the photos are just adorable. I really love Halloween for this very same reason: just watching the happy faces of the kids and enjoying their happiness. Pure joy! Happy Holidays to you all! :)Rebecca

Carving Our Pumpkin

Last year we carved our pumpkin WAY too early and that junk was beyond molded and covered in all kinds of gross bugs before Halloween even arrived. So this year we waited until Oct 30th to carve it! Haha! We weren’t taking any chances. We got home from church and changed clothes then headed in the backyard to do the carving. I thought Kye would be very into helping…but he was more interested in running around the yard.

I told Zach I didn’t care what the pumpkin really looked like…I just wanted it to be HAPPY!

with our pumpkin!

Nothing fancy, but it was cute. Maybe next year Kye will be more excited about it and we’ll make a little bigger event out of the whole thing 😉
