Pumpkin Carving Time....

Pumkin cutting is a very messy task to take on. Yet, I must confess it is a lot of fun to do. My kids picked a theme of the cross to put into their pumpkins this year. The last several years we did the prayer pumpkin. What is a prayer pumkin? Please scroll doen to the next post to see.
My son designed his cross out on paper then went to work. It is really pretty in person. My little girl made hers like a jack o lantern but, with a cross nose. It turned out cute.

The fun part is to light them up outside and enjoy their creations. My kids are such good sports when it comes to posing for the camera. I must admit they think I am crazy taking pictures of them all the time. I can't help it though. They grow way too fast and I want to capture these images to remember. Well, not that I won't remember. I am just a very visual person. They'll understand some day when they have kids.

Happy Fall !!!!


  1. I used to have so much fun carving pumpkins with my kids! I enjoyed seeing yours!

  2. Aw, neat! The kids did good jobs on those pumpkins!

  3. Love the kids pumpkins..We did the cross theme one year as well. Don't know that we will carve a pumpkin this year. I only bought one of the little pie pumpkins.
    Hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween.
