Pumpkin Carving

Ah!  Let the craziness that is the holiday season (being the 90 or so days from the middle of  Oct. to the middle of Jan.) begin!

Today we did our first "official" act of this year's holiday season...we carved Sara's pumpkin!  Now I know those of you who know me well are shocked by this since I can't stand mushy, squishy, grossness at all.  But Sara really wanted to carve it, so Poppy to the rescue!  My dad sat down with Sara and they had a great time, and when the time came for Sara to stick her hand in and pull out all that mess...she refused!  Apparently she's been hanging out with me too much!  Oops!

Here are some of the pictures I took to memorialize Sara's first pumpkin carving experience!

The three of us when we're all done!


  1. O my goodness! How adorable! :D My little girl...what a doll!

    PS doesn't surprise me one bit about the goo. She's always been that way...freaking out when she's wet or way would she stick her hand in that. :)

  2. Great pictures! :) Looks like she had fun, with or without goopy mess, she enjoyed her part at least! :)
