it's nearly time for me to plant my pumpkins again and here i am just beginning to blog about our carving from last year... well, the way it goes down here at our home is that dad and mom cut off the tops, then each child cleans out their pumpkin as well as they can, then they draw a face on the pumpkin with a sharpie and mom or dad cut them out...and usually everyone is happy. took a while for me to do them all by myself but we survived. anson has come a long way as afar as pulling out the "guts" of the pumpkin...he used to stay far away from that part but did really well this time. and good o'l dax was a fairly content casual observer. that will so not be the case this coming year- i'm pretty sure..
