Traditional Pumpkin Carving
Another family tradition for Halloween, carving pumkins!! This year we each got our own pumkin. I got the cool stencils to trace onto the pumkins, and we each picked one. Scott and I were the stencil pokers ( you have to go around each stencil and poke holes into the pumpkins following the lines on the image ) Then Scott and I were the carvers. All the kids really do is cheer us on, and they do love getting messy and scraping out all the insides. I do have to say Kashley didn't enjoy this part at all, too gooey and gross!! They did turn out really cool, but we did do it a little too early, by the time we were to take them with us to our stake annual trunk or treat, they were almost too shriveled to see what they were. Good thing we took pics!!
