here's how they turned out!

We helped the girls carve their pumpkins last night. they both really liked it. Here is Kiersten scraping out the goop. This is the first year Kara wasn't grossed out by the inside of the pumpkin. She was actually willing to help scrape it out this year.
making sure it is all cleaned out.
Kiersten carving. I just let her hold the saw for the photo op, but she actually cut down a little bit. That's how the eyes ended up a bit uneven.
Ben helped Kara and I helped Kiersten. Kara told Ben just how she wanted hers to look. She would tell him what shape each feature should be, and then he would draw it on a piece of paper for her approval. I just did Kiersten's how I wanted, and she didn't care, as long as she got to help.
finished pumpkins on the porch. It was raining, so I just put them on my plant stand by the door, so the candles would stay lit.
here they are in all their glowing glory.

Oooh, the cat one is really cute! I wish we had kids to carve with! I'm just not motivated enough to do one with just Vic & I.
