To carve our pumpkins this year I gave the kids full control of their design. If you know me well, you know how hard that was for me. I gave them each a Sharpie with only one instruction, to draw lines where they want cut.
They were so happy with their finished products that they wouldn't put the pumpkins on our porch, they slept with them.
Pleased as punch, or should I say pleased as a pumpkin.
