Pumpkin carving fun....

We decided to buy a pumpkin yesterday when we were at the grocery store. When Madi, Lily and I go for our walk we usually walk by the dentist's office and he has one of those big blow up pumpkins in his front yard. Madi was super interested in it and so I explained that its a pumpkin but we cut a face into it and it becomes a Jack-o-lantern. The pumpkin at the dentist office has a ghost coming out of it but in her sweet little innocence Madi calls it the white man hiding in the pumpkin! So when we saw the pumpkins at the store she wanted to bring one home... it was so much fun..
She was a bit unsure about sticking her hand inside and pulling out all the seeds... so she just watched Daddy do it!
She told David what shapes to make the eyes, nose and mouth. She has a program on the computer that lets her do that with pumpkins, snowmen, and gingerbread men so she knew what to do!
David spend so much time carving the pumpkin that he became the pumpkin!

My beautiful Madi waiting "patiently" for her pumpkin to be done!
