Pumpkin Carvers: The Rookie Style!

Oh my! It feels great to be back on track. How was your weekend guys? Our weekend went great! Last Saturday we went to a travel agency, picked up my passport, did a little shopping, and carved the pumpkins. Our Sunday was kind of mighty low, we just did some cleaning, and watched a movie. Also, I finally got my front porch decorated(halloween stuff). How about yours?One of our great family traditions....Pumpkin Carving!
Akesha's trying to take out the guts. She had her gloves on btw!...lol...:)
Here's what we came up with....lol! Hubby had a hard time carving his pumpkin. He picked the wrong kind, it was super thick. So he came up with an ugly face...lol! I carved a skull, and Akesha did nothing on her pumpkin. Actually, she did some markings on it though....lol! Well, she did what she always does every year...put some pen marks on her pumpkin! lol!

You have such a wonderful family picture. Nakakataba ng puso ang mga litrato ng bonding moments ninyo. Ang gaganda naman ng mga carved pumpkins ninyo. Tanong ko lang, ano ang ginagawa ninyo sa na scoop na lamang loob ng pumpkins? Tinatapon na lang ba ito o iniluluto pa rin? Yun pumpkins ba ay pwede ring gawing minatamis o sweets tulad ng squash? Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

David Funk said...

You guys did great with pumpkins, and you look prepared for Halloween!

Inquiring minds want to know what you guys are dressing up as? If you're really thinking of combining cranberry and Batman, I would suggest it. LOL!

Have a great night my dear friend!
