We had TONS of pumpkins this year: we each picked one out at the pumpkin patch, N2 each got one on a field trip and they each got one from another event (I can't remember what event anymore). I thought we would only carve the big ones but N2 were insistent that we carve ALL the pumpkins. That meant scooping out 8 pumpkins. Luckily it was a beautiful October day (too bad it didn't stay that way for Halloween) and we were able to do it outside. I started it when I got home from work, then N2 helped me when they got off the bus. We had them all scooped out by the time Brian got home (lucky him!) I did make N2 scoop out the small pumpkins.
I took pictures of them another day with their pumpkins. It was red ribbon week at school and it was mustache day (not sure what that has to do with red ribbon week but I have stopped trying to figure out their school-it generally doesn't make sense). They wanted to take pictures with their mustaches on.
