Pumpkin Massacre

 This is about the only time I have let them use such weapons of mass destruction and now I know why. At one point I looked from one girl to the next and I see Olivia with a giant knife (intended for the Mom's) and she is trying to get it through the pumpkin-I gasped. If she had slipped she could have stabbed herself. Jesus-who's idea was this?
I think they had forgotten the best part-The pulling of the guts. Olivia was OK once she got into it but Ava was a bit creepy and had to remove every single seed. He has a seed phobia!
The end results were terrific and even included ear holes. They are proudly displayed on our front step. This is actually Ava's pumpkin but she says it is Olivia so she wrote her name over the face. Too much!
We had this Pumpkin Fest with our friends Bonnie and Carlie. I love spending time with them as it includes grown up friend time and we can throw the kids together to entertain themselves for a bit. They raked a big pile of leaves and jumped and jumped. When we were ready to tackle the pumpkins Ava came in with a head full of leaves. Iforgot how much fun that was. Our only tree out front is actually still green and full of leaves. I guess 02536 is in another season. Soon enough we will have a swimming pool of leaves and I will cursing.
