Happy Halloween

It is that time of year for pumpkins.  The actual carving and scooping out the guts of the pumpkin has been designated to my husband since the beginning of this tradition.  I really don't like the slimy feeling.

years ago I bought some pumpkin faces that the kids use to decorate their pumpkin

They love coming up with pumpkin faces!

Princess always makes her pumpkin 2 faced--side 1

side 2 of the pumpkin
This year Little Man decide to insert every single face piece into his pumpkin

He called it his Zombie pumpkin

While the kids were entertained with building their creations, Daddy got to work on the Jack-O-Lantern.  This year he got lucky as the children chose an easy design for him to do.  We always let the children decide which pattern to use for the family Jack-O-Lantern.

Every year Princess asks to try to help with the scooping out of the pumpkin and every year she thinks it is gross:)!

Great job Daddy!!


  1. Okay, where did you get those face pieces? I would so love to get some of them! They would allow Dora to decorate her pumpkin without dealing with dangerous knives and so forth. Your hubs did a great job. Dora didn't want to carve a pumpkin this year, so we didn't do any carving. I'll deal with the guts, but you're right, they are slimy inside.

    1. I got these years ago at K-mart, don't know if they still exist but they are great for the kids and they love them:)
