Carving Out Traditions

Joseph's friend Skyler's mom wanted to start a new tradition by hosting some of his friends over for a pumpkin carving party over the weekend.  I showed up ready to go with surgical gloves and power tools!  But mostly I just gutted the majority of the pumpkins and the kids did the rest of the work themselves.

Our many years of carving together must have prepared Joseph well.  He was a pro and carved the entire thing by himself (with Brent holding the pumpkin steady) while I helped some of other kids.  It's kind of frightening seeing him wield a knife like that!

Nick is the cutest kid and was such fun to work with.  Somehow people were able to tell I helped on this one just a tiny bit.

That's OK, I wasn't the only one getting my hands dirty.

They did such a great job!  Great tradition to start :)

Joseph could not wait to get his home and light it up!
