Some people act surprised when they find out I don’t like to carve pumpkins for Halloween. It surprises me that they think I enjoy it.
Maybe it’s because I was scarred for life by a 4th grade teacher who made his students close our eyes while sticking our hand in a pumpkin full of slimy pumpkin guts….gross. (Or maybe it’s because I stink at it.)
This weekend a dear friend hosted a pumpkin carving party. Imagine how excited I was. My kids were excited.
We brought 6 pumpkins; hauling them to the friend’s house in the wagon.
Six was ambitious on my part.
After carving two pumpkins myself I can now say I am a pumpkin carving convert.
See, it turned out cute! The pumpkin…and the kid!
Parker was a great helper retrieving the slimy guts.
Alex carved 3 pumpkins but would have carved 6 by herself.
A zombie pumpkin….of course.
Between everyone at the party there were 20 carved pumpkins.
Pretty cool for someone who didn’t think she liked to carve pumpkins.
BTW, December Daily is gearing up to start. If you want to know more about celebrating the magic of the season that is glorious December, check out Ali Edwards’ guided prompts and scrapbooking products. But, honestly, you don’t need to use the products to participate or document the magically season. Just create something.
