Carving Pumpkins

This year was Cain and Savannah's first year to carve their own pumpkins. In the past we used Mr. Potato Head body parts or paint to decorate their pumpkins. I decided they were ready so we bought them each a child's carving kit. We had our tradition Halloween dinner hot dog mummies and cookies for dessert then they picked out their designs. I assisted by drawing design on pumpkin and used a toothpick to punch small holes so they could see thier design. I even shaded in the part that needed to be cut out with a marker and they were set to carve. Savannah was really into it. She didn't want my help but Cain need some assistance. Hers is the face and his is a bat image.
