Jacob and I did finally carve a pumpkin the day before Halloween. Now I'm thinking that this really isn't that bad of an idea because then it isn't all wilted and looking deformed for Halloween. As you can see he did help to pull out "the guts" as he called them. What you don't see is that he did it with a little tiny shovel so he didn't actually touch any of the gross guts!
Our finished project. Now you may wonder why the pumpkin is sitting on the toilet. Well you see there is a candle in the pumpkin and the bathroom was the dsarkest room however with a camera flash you can't tell that so it just looks like we take all of our pictures in the bathroom instead!
Halloween right before trick or treating! So I struggled with the idea of trick or treating last year and what to do about it. I ended up deciding we would only go to our neighbors, whom we know, and then friends. We end up going to 8 houses in town and then to my uncle's in the country and my brother's. He still received plenty of candy and got the jist of trick or treating.
And the painted turkey!
