Pumpkin Carving

Last night we carved pumpkins for Halloween it was so much fun.


We started out with templates from a pumpkin decorating kit man if you haven't tried these it is so hard to follow the pattern. But the hardest thing is cutting out the design.





The kids were tracing the design with this little tool that pokes tiny holes into the pumpkin it leaves like a dotted line on the pumpkin flesh to follow with the carving tool.















Baby girl decided on a cat picture that she saw in there and the boy
chose a face. I helped baby girl and daddy helped the boy.










They really turned out better than I thought they would we tried to see how they would look with the candles in them but the kitchen was to bright.



So after it was dark we took the pumpkins outside to display our hard work. Don't they look cool?








I am so happy with how they turned out that I am thinking about getting more pumpkins to do more.
