Pumpkin Carving Time

The neighborhood we live in has decided to celebrate Halloween tonight. So last night we decided to carve our pumpkins.

When the boys were little we did a variety of pumpkin based art projects over the years. I have a few of them still and use them as Halloween decorations. At 9 and 10 they don’t want to color pumpkins or create paper pumpkins or even carve fake pumpkins. Nope, this year they dove right in and carved their own pumpkins.

They designed the faces and picked up the pumpkin tools and carved away. I love seeing their creativity. I love seeing them develop more and more independence. I love the fact that they are growing up.
