My oldest daughter and her boyfriend brought over 4 pumpkins on Halloween night. As always, they were running a bit late, so we decided to carve them up the next evening. Everyone went trick or treating while I sat outside giving out halloween candy while the mosquitoes munched on me.
The next night they came over again and we searched the internet for stencils, printed them out and got to work. Cleaning out the insides was really messy. We saved all the seeds to bake later. Pumpkin seeds are supposed to be really good for you.
We used a pumpkin carving knife set to start and added a few weird instruments from the kitchen, like an ice pick and a nut thing-a-ma-diddy that helped. It’s HARD to carve those gourds!
But, I believe we did some excellent pumpkin carvings and I wanted to share them.
