Isak’s choice, hands down. What 7 year old kid wouldn’t take unbridled pleasure in a pumpkin with a blatant bright orange gluteus maximus?! This wacky pumpkin was lit with the green glow from his nightlight and won the “funniest pumpkin” prize at school (amid many giggles I ass-ure you).

How I did it:
Fun tradition I did with my family every year when I was a kid and now that we have a baby we wanted to try to make a new family tradition.
We picked pumpkins at the farm the other day with the intention of carving them. We bought pumpkin carvers from CVS 3 years ago. They went unused until NOW!
First we cut the pumpkins open and showed our 11 month old all the goop inside. We let him touch the inside and he hated the texture. He became bored and cranky fairly shortly thereafter so we took a time out until bedtime.
My husband I I have a blast! How fun! We hid the faces from each other and just got to work. It was almost a meditative experience once we got into the design... just lost in our work and creativity.
We both got candles ready lit them, shut off the lights and revealed them to each other! So cool. We put them in the front window and went outside to see what they look like to the neighbors.... oooooooooooooo scarrrrrryyyyyyyy!!!! : )
We had so much fun we might go get another 2 pumpkins tomorrow to do it again!
Hubby is drying out the seeds to roast them tomorrow!
Uploaded the pics... Hubby's on the left and mine on the right. Read how I did it… 6 months ago
I will consider this goal done if I get 1 pumpkin carved!
My husband and I met in 2009. In October of 2009 we bought pumpkin carvers and pumpkins to make jack-o-laterns. We never did it…
Every year since we’ve picked pumpkins with the intention of carving because that’s so fun and we NEVER do it. The pumpkins become squirrel food…
So this year… even if hubby doesn’t want to… I am doing it! By Wednesday the 31st it will be done. I will upload a picture as proof : ) and we will roast pumpkin seeds too! 6 months ago

I finally carved a pumpkin for this Halloween!

We were a bit short on scooping and carving time, but we had a lot of fun. There sure were a lot of elaborate ones with their faces lighting up the neighborhood last night.
We’ll enjoy ours for a few more evenings; they cast such lovely light and shadows, and smell divine. I’ve saved the seeds and hope to get to them tomorrow.
(It’s fun to look over pumpkins past.) Until next year…18 months ago
Me and my host mom Kristin saw brilliant prices on those pumpkins and we decided to actually carve them!
I cutted my fingers twice and had a surgical incision on my pumpkin with the needle, but finally I did it. I`m pretty happy with how it looks. 18 months ago
