We started a new pumpkin carving tradition with Nanie and Papa last year. The kids love having them come over to join the fun! Also, it’s nice to have a few extra hands when you are trying to carve 4 (now 5) pumpkins.
This year, Augie carved his pumpkin almost all on his own! We told him to choose something that would be a little easier so he could practice and learn. I choose to surprise the kids with a Kermit pumpkin (because they are oddly obsessed with our Kermit puppet). Matt chose to carve Finn from Augie’s favorite cartoon and Ari wanted a cute Minion.
Nanie and Papa went with some more traditional faces this year, but we all decided that Nanie’s pumpkin turned out to be one of the best!
