I'm 34 years old, and until today had never carved a jack-o-lantern! Is that crazy or what??
That all changed today when the kids and I set out to carve and paint pumpkins. It all started out as a "we" thing, but when it came time to clean out and carve the pumpkin, it suddenly became a "me" thing! I still enjoyed the challenge and was pretty pleased with the rookie effort! Here's some pictures from our fun afternoon:
Benjamin & Hannah's Pumpkins...Before
My Sweet Pumpkin Painters!
Jack-o-lantern stencils that you can print online are GREAT!!
All in all, I carved one pumpkin, roasted 3 cups of pumpkin seeds, and put 5 cups of fresh pumpkin in the freezer for some yummy holiday baking!! Fun afternoon!
