The Pumpkin Carvers

We finally carved our pumpkins! The boys have been reciting Tucker's poem from school for two weeks: Pumpkin, pumpkin, round and fat. Turn into a jack-o-lantern just like that!

I found a kit at Target that was a lot like a "lite-brite" (that was one of my all time favorite toys). Keaton used this kit because he could pound the little stakes into the pumpkin all by himself. Tucker needed a real-live carved pumpkin, so he served as Dad's assistant.
Here are the boys hard at work.

And here they are posing with the finished products.

The spooky jack-o-lanterns!

Keaton thought he should get to blow out the candles like on a birthday cake.
