How We Carved Our Pumpkin

This morning after Brian went down for his morning nap, Elizabeth and I carved her pumpkin. We weren't able to go pumpkin picking this year, but Elizabeth chose this beauty at Trader Joe's this week. Here's a photo journey through the process:

1. Elizabeth drew a picture of the face she wanted on paper.

2. I drew that face as best I could onto the pumpkin.

3. We cut around the top of the pumpkin.

4. Elizabeth pulled the top off.

5. We removed the innards.

6 & 7. I cut the face and Elizabeth pulled out the pieces. Then she put the top back on.

8. We took a picture of the two of them together!

Have a safe and fun Halloween!
