carving pumpkins

tuesday night we carved pumpkins.

addison played with her little pumpkin and colored for a while. then she got restless and so chris let her help carve his pumpkin. she didn't really help, but she thought she was!

i had to show the pictures of addison eating her yogurt. she's so messy, but so cute. apparently she thinks her hand is a spoon.

now on to the pumpkins. i think we did pretty good! there's a skull and crossbones, a flamingo, an elmo, and a witch. can you guess who carved what?

chris carved this one...

my mom carved this one (she loves flamingos)...

i did this one for my granny...

and i did this one since addison love elmo!

we had a few breakages. my mom's flamingo fell out, but she was able to fix it with toothpicks. my elmo also fell apart. i was very upset. but my mom repaired him :)

i never realized how quickly they rot. i was expecting them to last until halloween, but i don't think that's going to happen. guess we'll have to procrastinate next year.
