Pumpkin Carving Party

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, but I suppose that’s to be expected with a newborn in the house (on top of finishing up a PhD and applying for teaching jobs!).  Now that Charlotte is 6 weeks we’re starting to get back to normalcy—so much so that we were able to host a pumpkin carving party.

We picked pumpkins from our own garden (with some added from the store for the actual carving, because the home-grown are so incredibly tasty for baking it seems to much a waste to make those into jack-o-lanterns).  IMG_4845

We brought them inside and washed them.

Then we (well, really the adults) started carving.

Kate was of limited help…

…until it came time to tear out the guts!

Eventually we finished and produced some very fine work.

I'm hoping that's Kate holding Charlotte and not eating her... ;-)
