Pumpkin carvin'

We didnt make it to a pumpkin patch this year, but we did have our annual pumpkin carving party. Cami was totally into carving her pumpkin this year and she decided to go with a white one. She scooped it out entirely on her own. Then she designed what she wanted to carve and went through about 10 sheets of paper getting it just right.

Then she let Mommy cut it out for her, but not without lots of pointers. She was VERY serious and wanted it JUST the way she planned.

This little guy wanted nothing to do with the goo inside the pumpkins.
He was content just pushing his around all night.

Guess whats on Pat's mind???

Here's Cami's cute cousin, Kellen mapping out his pumpkin.

What a trooper Aunt Jess is! 9 months pregnant and STILL on the floor carving the perfect pumpkin. (Cami just cant get enough of her baby bump, she is SO excited to finally have a GIRL cousin on this side)!

we roasted these bad boys.. yum!

Grandma Di-Di's creation
(it's a proud Granny with her grandkids).

Ta Da!

Blowing them out at the end of the night!
Cami must have had a SERIOUS fire safety lesson last year in preschool because she was very concerned about these candles.
She felt much better after blowing them out.


  1. I loved your post Chelsea! It is so fun to see Cami having a great time and doing regular fall festivities! Yeah! And, she just look so adorable in her strawberry hat.

  2. i like Cami's cat! That's so fun your sister is having a girl. It's fun to see you guys still having fun and keeping up the pumpkin carving party. I remember the one we had out here. Good times.

  3. I love this time of year! From here until Christmas is just fabulous for spending time with family doing fun things. I love family traditions. Great way to keep our minds off of the imminent freeze!

    So glad you had a great time! I also love that the top of Cami's pumpkin is the shape of a heart- perfect!

    Safety first, Cami! Great job!
