2015 Jack-o-Lanterns

Sunday night, for family fun day, we decided to let the kids carve their jack-o-lanterns for this year. 

The kids have been asking to make their pumpkins ever since we got them last week at Walmart. 



We set the kids up at our kitchen table and set to work. Bill cut the tops off of Rebecca's pumpkin and Benjamin's pumpkin. I set out to help Jacob. 



The kids kept saying this is gross, but the 2 oldest cleaned out their own pumpkins. 


 After cleaning out, we let them each design their own faces. 




Benjamin drew circles for his eyes and Bill helped him with his nose and mouth. Ben kept calling his pumpkin an apple. No matter how hard we tried to get him to say pumpkin, he argued it was an apple. Silly kid. 

Jacob drew his and then I cut it out. He knows that I am huge Green Bay Packers fan, so he said his pumpkin face was Aaron Rodgers' face. LOL

Rebecca designed her own and cut out her own design with the carving kit that I had.  She said it was her silly pumpkin. 


 Personally, I think they turned out really cute.

 After we placed them on the porch and found candles to put in them, they looked even better! 


We capped off the evening by watching "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" and eating some apple pie. Overall, it was a fun family evening!

  1. Very scary pumpkin faces. My kids are older (18 and 21) but they never liked scooping out the pumpkin either. Your pictures remind me of our family doing the same thing. Cheryl

    1. That is one rule that we have in our house. In my opinion it is only fair to each kid if they get to do their own. Works for us.

    1. No problem. I know that these moments will fly by and I am really trying to soak every opportunity in while I can.

  4. I love how Jacob has his hand up asking for help? He's well trained! They all turned out great!

    1. I am not sure if he had his hand raised to ask for help or if he was talking about something with his hands...LOL....
