We continued getting into the holiday spirit today with the Herrman's annual pumpkin carving fest. Matilda decided she wanted to be a pirate for the party after we were talking about how much Gigi is into pirates lately. We whipped out an old striped shirt, her stuffed parrot, a tin foil hook and voila!
Here Porter and Catie try to figure out how to get into the pumpkin without access to any of the cool carving tools.
A very genuine smile from M, not the cheese-ball camera one. She was very pleased that I let her use the pumpkin knives and happily stabbed random holes into a discarded cutout piece for quite a while. I kept trying to convince her to actually carve our pumpkin to no avail, so the little gourd made it back home intact.
