Our Five Ring Circus: Pumpkin Carving

Pumpkin Carving

Since today was a week until Halloween, we decided to carve our huge pumpkins. Four hours, 6 cuts, and 4 blisters later, they are complete!

The kids only lasted about a half hour. Dylan was feeling a bit under the weather, and ran off to lay on the couch.

Lexie eventually came back to sit with her daddy.

Grant and I were a bit frustrated near the end, because they were taking forever to carve, and all of our tools broke. I ended up using a screwdriver and a knife to punch out the rest of the pattern. Hence, the blisters!

Evil pumpkins. I'm glad we only do this once a year!

The hard work was worth it, though. Dylan and Lexie loved their pumpkins!


  1. Great job. Love the pic of Grant kissing Lexie. Aww.....
