Jack O' Lanterns

We waited to do our pumpkin carving till the weekend before Halloween this year, hoping that would keep them from rotting out before Halloween night. We were WRONG! Ew, ew, ew!!! Carving pumpkins has always been a tradition I refused to break, but after cleaning up two liquified, smelly, fly-infested pumpkin corpses, I may change my mind on that tradition next year!! Painted pumpkins are sounding like a great idea! ;)
But the carving itself is always fun. I had picked up a carving kit and the big kids each picked out a design. They were definitely more involved than our usual triangle eyes and toothy smile, but the carving kit and stencil made it pretty easy to accomplish. A big thanks to Grammie and Grandad for their help, and to Daddy for grilling us some wings while we carved! :)
