how do you like your pumpkin?

the annual carve-a-thon was held.
we had a few visitors.
and, we had a blast!

Bayli had her friend Shae over to share in the fun.  Shae was the most excited about removing the guts.  Bayli hated touching them.  Shae pretty much gutted both of their pumpkins-thanks Shae!

Chase didn't care for gutting the pumpkin either.  Mom did most of his.  But he did like playing with the bowl of seeds after they were out of his pumpkin.

Chase couldn't wait to get the face on his pumpkin.  He kept trying to feed it seeds.  He loved it so much, he kissed it and chattered at it.
Grandma and Grandpa Dixon came to join in the fun as well.  Grandma played with Lily (much appreciated) and Grandpa carved the pumpkin we shared with him.  He probably wouldn't tell you, but Halloween is secretly my dad's favorite holiday-at least I think it is.  He gets so excited about the Trick-or-Treaters.  I am surprised that he has never made a haunted house.

Jed got home late, we insisted that he carve a pumpkin.  Reluctantly, he agreed.  He used power tools to torture his poor pumpkin.  The job was done in less than a minute.  I am sure that he will do that again next year.
My pumpkin was the very last to get done.  Isn't that always how it is?  I figured that I didn't need to do one because I had already done three (the kids).  But, everyone insisted.  I was in such a hurry that I didn't realize my pumpkin was upside down.
 Chalese joined the fun as well.  She was such a wonderful helper, that we decided to keep her as a pumpkin.
