Pumpkin Carving

The rain returned today so we spent the majority of the day inside. We played games and carved our pumpkins. The boys had a great time carving pumpkins.
The boys enjoyed getting their hands dirty and slimy. They both did a great job cleaning out all the guts. It was fun to me to see their different style of digging. Jacob looked like he was scooping cereal from a breakfast bowl and Andrew was scoopin' like it was hard ice cream.
Before we started carving Jacob went up stairs to his room and changed into the same shirt that Dad had been wearing all morning--a small red polo shirt Kelly picked up for him when he was Indiana this summer. He wanted to match Dad. Makes for a cute picture here.
This is Jacob's pumpkin he designed himself. Jacob drew little round eyes, a smiley face, and little arms on his pumpkin with a sharpie. Then Dad helped him cut out the skinny parts. I love how it has little arms. Very nice work Jake!
This is Andrew's Pumpkin. I helped him carve it out. He wanted teeth and eyes and this is what we came up with. A classic Jack-O-Lantern.
Here are all three pumpkins. Kelly helped Jake I helped Drew and Kelly made a Daddy pumpkin too. --emily

Great job on the Jack-O-Lanterns. They all look perfect. And I LOVE your Halloween quilt in the background.

I love the carving intensity you captured Em, the end result was so fun. I love the arms you added to your pumpkin Jake. Andrew I love your scooping and Jack-O-Lantern face. Nice job Kelly! I loved smelling the musky burning pumpkin smell when you lit your pumpkins and made them so spooky on Halloween night.
Love, momAKAgrandma
