Carving Pumpkins

Yep, we left the carving until the last minute. This is because Sam doesn't like it, I'm not in love with it and as we found out tonight, the kids lose interest fast. So we did this for no other reason than because everyone else did it. I really don't want my kids to be shaking their heads when they are 30 and lamenting the fact that they didn't carve pumpkins for Halloween. There. 'Nuf said. :)

The kids were excited for the carving, especially Kaitlyn who had asked many many times today when we could carve her pumpkin. And they had fun for the 2 minutes they spent scooping out the pumpkin seeds but they were soon sick of the process and back on the couch watching Alvin and the Chipmunks (the halloween one). Maybe we should have turned off the TV before we started?
Here is the face Katy wanted on her pumpkin.

And here are the finished products. See, you can tell we don't do this very often. Kaitlyn's is on the left. Think I came close enough to the face? She says no, "it's a mad face." Ahhh well, maybe next year!
Then after all this, poor Katy threw up. We're thinking it's a very mild case of food poisoning - fingers crossed she's ok for all the fun tomorrow!
