She hasn't been feeling the greatest so I was skeptical as to how the day would go. We brought in the pumpkins and got to work. These are the BEFORE and very excited faces!
This is Hudson when he took the top off of his pumpkin. He was shocked to see that much 'stuff' inside. He is now hesitant...
Stella wanted to peek inside too! I was still working on getting hers open!
Let the scooping begin...
Stella is eager to open her pumpkin! She refused to touch the 'guts' but would stir them with the spoon!
Interesting... I like this stuff!
I will just say cheese... I am NOT touching that stuff!
Hudson chose a MEAN, scary teeth, pumpkin. (Thank you Hudson for your easy design)
All Lit Up!
The Sofia Template... (Thank you Stella for being insistent on having THIS one)
I carved Stella's mostly on the couch because she did NOT want to sleep in her bed. So she slept on the couch and I carved. I broke BOTH tools that came with the kit, and resorted to many different knives to get the job done.
All done! Stella calls her PIA! Every time she sees it!
CHEESE! I love PIA!
All lit up! <3 I think it turned out pretty well. She was worth the two hours of carving... bloody fingers, etc! (haha)
