Pumpkin Carving

I thought I had picked the perfect pumpkin for my carving this year. Turns out it was the perfect size but it was SUPER thick. Brandon and I have a deal where he gets the honors of carving out all the guts and I get to do the fun part. He gave up on getting ride of the insides because the more he scraped the more pumpkin guts appeared. Finally we just gave up and started carving. I love those carving books because they have such cute ideas but they never turn out like the picture. . .even for a talented carver like myself. I think next year I will just stick to my own creative intuition and create a design myself. Everyone's pumpkins turned out great but my favorite was Missy's Harry Potter pumpkin. Maybe next year I will have to figure out a way to make Dumbledore.

You are such a cute mom Jess! It looks like you are having a great time with family. You get to carve pumpkins and dress your little guy up like a lion. He is super cute by the way. Love ya!
