We carved pumpkins tonight. Once again, it is so nice when kids get older and are able to do some things by themselves. After I cut the top off Colin’s pumpkin off, he cleaned it out, traced his design on it, and did most of the carving, with just a little help from Chad. I love that he loves to try things by himself and show so much confidence when he does. Chad and I did all the work for the other three, with Gabe choosing his design and Oliver showing me (in the picture above) what to draw for his pumpkin face. Carina’s input was saying, “Mickey. Mickey. Mickey” over and over again. She is a little obsessed right now, so she was pretty darn happy with her pumpkin. It was a great night.
