The Pumpkin

Yes, we did really get a pumpkin at the patch. The night before Halloween we gathered to carve it. The Lizard King got behind the camera for a bit. Princess and I dug in to scoop out the guts.

But Princess wasn't quite into the messiness of it all.

But I can only give up the camera for so long . . .

She was all over the design and couldn't wait to cut it out.

But found it to be a lot harder than she had anticipated.

This was the first time that we carved a pumpkin together and Princess was so excited!

After lighting our jack-o-lantern, we took a walk to look for festive Halloween decorations around the neighborhood. I hope everyone had a happy Halloween!


  1. Awesome ginormous pumpkin!

    Yeah, the first time can be a little awkward, what with getting used to all the guts and that they're a lot harder to carve than they look.

    The most fun is putting a candle inside and seeing it glow in the dark.


  2. That is the most perfectly ROUND pumpkin I ever saw! And a really amazing scary face. Good work girls!

  3. That is a huge pumpkin! Great design Princess :-)
