Each year before Halloween, we carve pumpkins. Once we had Levi, our tradition expanded to include John's parents. John's dad is a woodcarver so he brings all his fancy knives and chisels to help with the pumpkin carving.
Grandma Sue and Lillian
This year we carved three pumpkins. John carved a huge one in his usual scary style.
Papa carved one for Levi (while also playing fireman with him). Levi requested a scary and happy pumpkin. He wasn't interested in helping clean out the pumpkin-he said it was "gross", but that's why he's shirtless.
I carved one for Lillian. I tried to make it look like a baby, but clearly my pumpkin-carving skills are limited. Oh well, she doesn't know the difference yet.
It's a fun tradition and they turned out cute/scary, as usual. We also roasted the seeds with a little oil and salt-yum!
