Our family adventures

Jolly jack-o-lanterns

I admit, it looks like I’m stabbing Allie’s head here… but really, the knife is in the pumpkin, which is well behind her.
This afternoon ended up being kind of a waste because we went to Wal-Mart hunting for a car seat from Peyton that the web site said was available in store… but it wasn’t. The day wasn’t a total waste though because we also got a pumpkin carving kit and carved our jack-o-lanterns!
Peyton enjoyed jumping away watching the fun.
Allie has a book called “The Littlest Pumpkin,” that Aunt Jeni bought her a couple years ago the she really loves. So she got a littlest pumpkin of her own, but it was too small for the pattern.
So I just went with a generic face here. It turned out pretty good, I think.
The bigger pumpkin was more of a challenge. It took a long time to clean it out. And it was harder to trace the pattern and cut it out than I expected.
Peyton loves his pumpkin! Actually I’m sure he has no clue what this is, but he was trying to pick it up and find something to put in his mouth. It was a little big for that though.
We didn’t get around to carving pumpkins last year. I’m glad we did it this year! I picked up some battery-operated lights at Wal-Mart too so we could like the jack-o-lanterns too!
