Adventures in pumpkin carving

Halloween Eve we carved our family pumpkin! It was Cali's first time to get in on the carving action. She wasn't too sure at first. . .

What IS that stuff?
Hmmmm....I think I love it!
The older girls expressions were hilarious.
Joey pulled a huge chunk out and dropped it on the table. SPLAT! It made for some excitement:)
Daa-aad.
The finished pumpkin! Ella drew the eyes and eyebrows. Aubrey drew the nose and mouth. Cali was the head goo remover and supervisor. Joey was the carver and I was the photographer.

Our Jack O Lantern all aglow on Halloween night. Isn't he a friendly little guy?
Somebody made him angry though...
Leave it to Joey to take a freaky picture of our innocent little pumpkin:)
