Yes, we waited until the day before Halloween to carve our pumpkin. :)
This was Olivia's first time being part of a pumpkin carving, and I'm pretty sure it was also her first time seeing a jack-o-lantern.
Checking out the guts!
She wasn't too sure about it!
Her fingers went in her mouth as she watched Boppa pull out some pulp and seeds.
After watching him she decided she could go ahead and give it a try.
Immediately she said, "It's just too icky!"
Quickly followed by, "Can you get it off, please?" She doesn't like messy hands! After her hands were cleaned, she observed only.
Pattin the outside while Boppa cleaned out all the gunk on the inside.
She kept asking "What's in there?" even though we had already answered her a dozen times.
We had a carving kit from years ago and debated about using one of the fancy pictures. But Olivia was getting a little impatient with our little activity, and since it was her first time we just stuck with a simple face.
She was pleased with the outcome! :)
This is the best picture I could get with it lit. It took longer with the darker mode and she kept moving so every picture was blurry. Regardless, she thought it was neat! Yay for new family traditions! :)
