Pumpkin carving!



The grands with their Mom. I think Em was ready to go!! LOL.

Donovan and Emily had a grand time picking out pumpkins yesterday at our local pumpkin patch! This morning (even before dressing), we went outside in the cool breezy air, to carve. Donovan was the carver (or mostly grandma... since Mom was at work...with strict instructions on exactly where to cut, and how the features were to look). Emily was too young, so Donovan drew a nose and mouth on her little pumpkin and we attached sticker eyes. They both turned out real well.


The large pumpkin lost his right eye in a terrible pirate accident!

Happy Pumpkin time to you all!

Cute pumpkins! I think it looks like the big one is winking. I always made my kids wait until the day before Halloween to carve theirs, otherwise they'd be moldy before the big night.

Hi Julie
Great fun and great pumpkin!!
I hope you saved the seeds for toasting and salting...I could use some of those right now as a little snack.
I've been eating squash lately and wondeering whether those seeds could be toasted and snacked on also....yum!
Lovely pics of the grandbabies...

wish we could get those pumpkins here at a reasonable price....They call them American Pumpkins. Hoe you had a great time. Looks like it.

What a great post. The picture of Donovan and Emily both shirtless while carving pumpkins is adorable.

Another advantage to living in FL. You can carve your pumpkin outside while you're topless. We sometimes have to wear snowpants to go trick or treating. lol
