Carving Pumpkins

We carved our pumpkins a few days before Halloween.
Benjamin had the biggest pumpkin, and he carved it all by himself.
He did have some help from Dad cleaning all the seeds out, though.

Our new little orphaned 5 week old kitten that we adopted was fascinated by everything that was going on. 
We didn't let Robert carve his pumpkin, because it was so small, so Elisabeth helped him draw a face and decorate it with markers.

The girls had very elaborate ideas for their pumpkin carvings.  Elisabeth wanted Sophia the First, Emily decided to do Olaf on her white pumpkin, and Leilani free handed a carving of Cinderella in her pumpkin coach.
The kitten decided to check out Benjamin's pumpkin while Leilani carved her pumpkin.
Leilani put in a lot of time - she worked on it two different days - and her final picture was awesome!

Emily ended up carving Elisabeth's pumpkin for her, as well as doing her own pumpkin.

Leilani also ended up carving my pumpkin for me, since I was sewing her Halloween costume for her.  I wanted a handcart, since we went on trek this year.  I think she did a great job with it!
