Pumpkin Carving Chaos

I cleared the kitchen floor, laid down newspapers, and put 4 pumpkins that we had gotten from the church pumpkin patch down.

Then the chaos began.

Four kids, one mess

Thumper takes a top

Ane and Tad get grossed out

By the time we were done, we had four carved pumpkins.

Ane did a Creeper face on her pumpkin, and lit it up with a green light for a cool effect.

The boys went for more traditional jack o’lantern faces this year.  Tad drew his own design, then tasked me with cutting it out for him.

Yes, his pumpkin has ears and arms.  He insisted.

Rerun wanted a VERY traditional triangle face, and I improvised a little so Thumper’s would be different than his brothers’ pumpkins.

Pumpkins carved…. check!  Now, to work on getting costumes prepped!

And also, I have to wish my brother the Major a happy birthday today!  Happy birthday, Major, from all of us here at home!  Have some shave ice to celebrate!
