Happy Halloween! 2008
Every year we carve pumpkins with our kids. Actually, I'm usually the one who carves the pumpkins and the kids watch.
Things have changed however and this year my oldest (9-year-old) asked if she could carve the pumpkin. She and her 8-year-old sister drew a sketch, and then they carved the bat out of the pumpkin we had bought. They did a pretty good job I thought considering they didn't really ask for any help.
My 6-year-old drew a cat on a piece of paper and I carved out her design. Then she helped me clean it out--although she didn't like sticking her hands into the pumpkin's innards. :0)
