Pumpkin Carving

Hello everyone, I just had now the time to  open my PC and do some reading of your comments, thanks a lot!  We were out the whole day.  We went to the mall, grocery store, and visited  Dad Pooch.  When we came back, we got busy with the pumpkin that we bought.  This is our first time to carve, we didn't do it from the previous years because the kids were still small and wouldn't be able to grasp the concept of the activity.  
Now that they can participate, we tried and we had so much fun!
Rylie  designed one of the pumpkins and hubby did the other one.  After he cut out the head/top, Rylie  removed the seeds and other stuff while Mommy was busy taking photos.
Rylie wanted to  carve a pumpkin that looks like Sandy (the squirrel from Sponge Bob), so she drew a face with buck teeth in it lol..
Do this looks like Halloween? Lol!
The youngest burrito tried to help too.
But he said, it's too hard lol!
What can you expect when Daddy goofs around?  The daughter also goofs around.. LOL!
This would be great for pigs.  We used to cook this for our pigs.
 Today is very special to us since this is our first pumpkin carving and also the 10-10-10.  We were also blessed with warm weather for a couple of days now so thank God for that.  Have a lovely start of the week, hope everyone had a blessed Sunday!

  16. That must be a lot of fun ! Halloween only exists since a few years here in Belgium, so I had never celebrated it in the past. Now each year there are more and more decorations.

  18. Yes, you have your resident artist in Rylie. She is always at the forefront of all your artistic activities. But carving your Halloween pumpkins will always be a family activity for all of you with fun and laughter thrown along the way. And the resident clown is of course John who is being copied by Rylie. May you have a fun filled Halloween celebration. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  22. Somehow the thought of just popping that gross inside of the pumpkin in my mouth just didn't sound good.
    But love that you all had fun time together and cute pumpkins

  23. My third graders "gut" pumpkins for a math project and it is amazing how many have never seen the inside of a pumpkin. What a great fall tradition! Love the finished products!

  24. Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's been too warm to cut into pumpkins here in Georgia. I saw a blog to make pumpkins into planters for mums and I can't wait to try that this year!
    Cute pics of the family!
