Pumpkin Carving

This week has been crazy weather-wise. The kids had school Monday, but on Tuesday the weather went nuts and we had a 2-hr delay to start that day. Wednesday and Thursday school was just cancelled because of the snow, winds and ice. Even dance classes were cancelled so we had lots of time on our hands. It was almost like having another week of fall break. Wednesday night we decided to occupy ourselves with carving the two pumpkins we got at the Happy Apple Farm last month. I started out with 4 helpers, but that dwindled down to just Beth before too long. 
While Sarah couldn’t help a whole lot she kept an eye on the process as I worked on her little pumpkin. 2009_1028_HalloweenPumpkins-5 2009_1028_HalloweenPumpkins-6
Beth did a lot of the carving on the big pumpkin, I just had a few pieces to help finish up when it got to be bedtime.2009_1028_HalloweenPumpkins-8

and we have been nibbling on roasted pumpkin seeds – always a yummy treat!

The kids thankfully did have a regular start to the school day today. Brenna was worried about missing her class Halloween party today, but as the weather has finally started to thaw out a bit she won’t have to. She has worn a different costume every day this week for something or other, one of the joys of having older twin sisters is lots of hand-me-down costumes to choose from!
