Pumpkin Carving

Over the weekend Amie watched with fascination as a friend carved this big pumpkin. Isn’t it spooky!

She couldn’t wait to carve one herself. We compromised: she could “design” the face (draw it on the pumpkin) but Mama would do the actual carving, under her direction of course.

Compared to the skullish one, hers looks so cute and golly.
