We had a great time carving pumpkins on Saturday. Nate carved the main pumpkin, Paige painted her own little pumpkin, and I went through all the pumpkin guts and got the seeds out and cooked them. It was a great pumpkin filled night!
Maybe one day Paige will want to touch the guts of the pumpkin. Every year she has wanted nothing to do with the inside of the pumpkin.
Her parents are kind enough to keep torturing her. :)
She helped a little with the spoon....
She was much more content with painting her own pumpkin.
She started mixing all the different color together and kept entertained the entire time seeing what color would appear on the plate when she mixed two colors together and then would find a space to put on her pumpkin.
Once Nate was done she decided to poke some holes in the pumpkin and do some "carving" herself. She saw Nate draw some of the design on his side and so she wanted to draw on her side of the pumpkin too.
Paige's beautiful artwork on the other side of the pumpkin. Proof that she is getting good at writing Paige, Mom, Dad, Nona, and Papa on her own.
Nate's finished artwork.
My finished product of roasted pumpkin seeds. They were pretty good.
It was a great evening!
