The Great Pumpkin Strikes Again

Let me just start by saying that I don't like Halloween. I do however like Fall. So I usually try to concentrate more on a harvest festival instead. What we usually do is carve pumpkins and frost cookies. The kids do trick or treat, but we don't make a big deal out of it, and no scary or gross costumes.
It takes alot of concentration to get the pumpkins hollowed out just right and then carved into the design of your choice. Parker did a good job all by himself, and in this picture Taylor is looking half asleep, but he was actually having a great time.
Everyone was pretty busy. If they were not dropping stuff on the floor, they were trying "not" to get it on each other, ha-ha! Actually, they did a pretty good job of keeping goop on the newspaper.
