It is the time of year for pumpkins and all things fall. Somehow my 6 yr old daughter convinced me to let her buy a pumpkin carving kit. So she runs in the door and begs her Daddy to take her to buy a pumpkin. As they are leaving, I suggest he buy 2 since this will be our first attempt at carving with a kit and not just cutting out a couple of triangles and a long slit for a mouth!
In time they return with 2 small pumpkins. I gently suggest that these pumpkins may be too small for the kit paper traceables that go onto the pumpkin. My husband so nicely suggests that next time I should go get the pumpkins. So moving on, I decide that pumpkin guts are messy and I don't want to touch that. So I stay out of the way. Lance then agrees that the pumpkins are too small so he attempts to reduce the size of the cutout using our printer/scanner. So tack on another 30 minutes and it's time to start cooking dinner. I look back to see this picture for most of the process ----
