Carving Pumpkins

It’s the Monday night before Halloween. What should we do for Family Home Evening? Why, carve pumpkins of course!

The girls are old enough to carve their own pumpkins without us worrying too much about them cutting off their fingers. Thus, my role is now limited to gutting the pumpkins. Fortunately, this is a duty I don’t mind.


Nancy helped Sam and Caroline carve their pumpkins. We let the kids carve whatever they wanted and we ended up with two smiley pumpkins and two frowny pumpkins.


Nancy is still trying to finalize the kids’ costumes. Samuel originally wanted to be a fireman, then a policeman, then he was going to be Spiderman. Of course seeing the Pirates of the Caribbean ride made the pirate hat in the grocery store too hard to pass up so now he’s going to be a pirate. Nancy’s been sewing away to make Samuel a pirate shirt as well as work with the girls on their costumes. One good thing about being in a new neighborhood is that the girls don’t mind wearing a previous year’s cosutome. Thus, I’m sure we’ll end up with several variations of princesses.

Nancy didn’t want me to take her picture.
