Pumpkin Carving

Tonight we carved our pumpkins for Halloween. Nichole joined us. She said this was the first time she had ever carved one.

We purchased a kit with designs in it. It isn't as difficult as it would seem. You place the template on the pumpkin, then use a toothpick to punch holes along the outline. That transfers the design so you can cut it out.

John did the engineering to get them all started and put chimneys in them so the candles would stay lit. I put cinnamon on the lids so they would smell nice and looked on wikihow.com to learn how to roast the pumpkin seeds.

The result of Chase, Bethany and Nichole's work was really cool. Now, they are all glowing on my porch swing.
