Making time....for carving pumpkins

As promised.....our pumpkin carving adventure :)
We started off with our utensils and several pumpkins.

I decided I would attempt the creative "D".  The others were going for a more traditional jack-o-lantern look.
First step was to cut the tops (which I did on three of the 4 pumpkins....16 year old can do her own!)
Next was the removal of the guts!

Slimey hands!!


Loving the mess!!

My 16 year old chose a pie pumpkin cuz she wanted a "cute" jack-o-lantern.  She got a mess!  LOL

My 10 year old daughter wanted the seeds for roasted pumpkin seeds.  I let her sort them out :)  She is excited to have them after school today!

Results in the light.
And the dark.

 Top one was carved by my sweet 10 year old, the left by my 7 year old (w/ very little help!) and the middle by my 16 year old.  I did the "D".

What a fun project to make time for!
