Pumpkin Carving

Last night we decided to carve our Halloween pumpkins! The daytime has been warm here, but hopefully the pumpkins will last through Halloween.

We originally were going to use Monster, Inc. stencils, but our pumpkins were too small for them! We ended up just doing faces which was still fun! It was nice to not have a complicated stencil this year!
Chloe Jo was fascinated when I took the lid off.
But, fascination or not, there was no way she was going to touch the mess that is the inside of the pumpkin!
Russ is going to kill me for posting this. HAHAHAHA! That's what he gets for making crazy faces for pictures, though!
Carving pumpkins is one of my favorite holiday things to do!
CJ did finally decide to help put the cut out pieces in the trash. She only touched them with the tips of two fingers to minimize contact.
She opted to go with the less messy stick-in face for her pumpkin. She was so proud of it!
And here we are with our finished pumpkins!
And here they are hanging out on our porch.
We had so much fun carving our pumpkins this year!
