Pumpkin Guts

So, we attempted, for the first time EVER to carve pumpkins with kids around. It actually wasn't too bad. The kids were utterly grossed out with the idea of putting their hands into the slime inside, but after they were (strongly) encouraged, they got over it. The kids cleaned out their own, designed faces on paper and helped mom and dad hold the carving utensil for the rough parts. They loved pushing the parts that were already cut right out of the pumpkin. Mia had more fun than anything else putting the pieces in and out again and again. You can tell she is my puzzle girl. Mom carved a bat and Dad did a ghost from a template. Really fun - except for the massive amount of pumpkin slime that ended up on the floor....
