The boys were quite excited to finally get to carve their pumpkins. I didn't dare brave it on my own while Daddy was away. We opted for one with a BOO mouth and another that appears to be roaring. Not too shabby :) Hayden wanted to do it himself, so he got to turn pumpkins into a bat and cat...and put on a jack-o-lantern face on another with wooden decorations - a great option for independent kids. We reuse them every year.
