Every year we carve pumpkins with the kids about a week before Halloween. This year we planned a last minute carving party with Roberts and Swensons. We had fun pulling out slimy pumpkin guts, roasting pumpkin seeds, & eating yummy treats (especially that lemon cake- I'm addicted) This year Halle did her pumpkin all by herself- she didn't want help and she did the whole humongous thing ( except for cutting the top off). We were so proud of her and it was nice to not get stuck finishing it- which is usually the case. She carved a kitty pumpkin (of course)!
