We carved pumpkins yesterday. We've never done this before. The idea was foreign to our kids. It was a fun experience letting them see and touch and squeeze the goopy slimy innards. Luke LOVED the nastiness. Lydia was disgusted and wanted to leave the room. Craig decided to try something more intricate than a plain old "jack" face. The kids had to go to bed before he finished, but it turned out pretty awesomundo!
