Jack-O-Lanterns :)

Last night I realized how lucky I was to have grown up in CA (well anywhere outside of NYC)...  The kids had NEVER carved a pumpkin.  Washington told me that not too many people do that there, in fact they buy them carved already.   Washington and I did most of the work, the kids drew and we carved...

Ariel did not like the way the insides felt...  she said EWWWW EWWWW EEEEWWWWWW  the whole time she was taking out the pumpkin guts

Joseph thought it was cool, but didn't care to do it too much.  He took out 2 handfuls and made Washington finish.

Here is Washington, I think he did most of the work.  But he is a great pumpkin carver!  I am glad he puts up with my, lets do this, lets do that lifestyle.  I am glad he always has fun, and a smile while we are going to the kite fest, going to the harvest fest, pointless road trips to thanksgiving point, waterfall trips, picnics - to get there and find out the park is closed for the season, carving pumpkins, etc.

The finished product!  Joseph's is the one on the left, and Ariel's the right (as if you couldn't tell from the heart eyes and nose)

I forgot my sister had more for us to take...  So we may carve a few more tonight!  :)
