Pumpkin Night!

All the pieces finally fell into place tonight. Greg and I were both home. He found pumpkins and let the boys each pick out one. We found the carving knife and spoon. Tonight was pumpkin night!

Both boys wore their pumpkin tops like a hat, just like last year and the year before.

Nick can't wait until he's old enough to use the knife. I, however, am just fine with waiting.

Henry and Nick really liked playing with the pumpkin goop--they made quite a mess and loved the squishiness.

Greg did all of the carving and cleaning up. (Thank goodness! It was a mess!)

They sure had fun, though!

Nick even hid one of his Lego guys in the mess and then tried to rescue him.

Greg looks like he's having way too much fun with his arms up to the elbow in pumpkin goop. Well, I did tell him to smile.

Henry needed some help drawing his face, so that's why it's rather benign. I'm not much of an artist.

He's rather a jolly fellow, don't you think?

Nick's pumpkin had a bit more scare factor, since he gave it lots of sharp, sharp teeth.

My guys, sitting among their pumpkin creations. I had to give Nick and Henry a bath right after the pumpkin explosion. They were covered in orange goop, so we saved picture time for after bathtime.

I think their hair looks really cute after a bath, even if it does stick up somewhat. I'm waiting on haircuts until this weekend because I want Henry to be able to pull off the "mad scientist" costume.

They were so proud of their pumpkins.

Happy Halloween!
