Pumpkins


Last week we carved pumpkins with Stan's sister Sarah and her friend. We had a great time. Emma is still afraid of the guts inside. She takes one look and won't go near the pumpkins until they are cleaned out.

Tyson was fascinated by the guts and everything. He wanted to touch the seeds but then thought about it and changed his mind. (Lately anytime you ask him something, he changes his mind!!!) The kids had a great time. With Aunt Sarah's help he got to do some carving.

The kids had a great time. Even us adults had fun. Sarah brought a huge pumpkin that Stan got to carve. He sure got a workout doing it. After Stan we done, we all thought his pumpkin looked familiar. It wasn't until later that I figured it out. Have you ever seen the movie Return to OZ? If so , doesn't this pumpkin look like the one Dorothy meets in the movie? If you haven't seen it I recommend it. Notice how thick the pumpkin is. Stan thought it was impossible to carve this but he did it.

This is the first year in a while that we didn't carve any - we'll have to do it next year.
