Pumpkin carving time

Today was the day to get our creative juices flowing and carve our pumpkins.  Caitlin couldn't wait to turn our pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns!  Nana, Poppy, Grandpa, and Uncle Paul came over to join in the fun!  Caitlin didn't mind the gooey insides of the pumpkin and enjoyed the entire carving process.  We'll let the photos tell today's story!

Looking through the pumpkin - you'll have to see Daddy's finished creation to see why he cut a hole in the top and bottom of the pumpkin
