You can't do Halloween without carving the pumpkins! I bought 3 this year, one for each boy, but only carved 2 because I wanted to keep one out for November.
Deciding what to carve each year is always a fun challenge. This year, while perusing Facebook one day, I spotted a pumpkin carved with a tiger hawk. Well duh, us Hawkeye fans most DEFINITELY had to try that! Aiden claimed the 'Hawkeye Pumpkin' as his own, which left Brennan to his own imagination and devices. He drew up what he wanted on a piece of paper, then we transferred it to the pumpkin.
First up, cleaning out the guts!

This is as close as Tate would get to the pumpkins once the gut removal started. I'm not sure if it was how gross the guts look, or the way they smell or what, but he refused to stand next to the boys or help.
Things got a little wild and Aiden ended up with pumpkin seeds on his face. :)
|See, he didn't like the pumpkin guts! :)|
Turned out pretty cool, didn't it!?! :)
Here's Brennan's masterpiece. I love the eyebrows, ha ha! :)
Major Mom-fail, I didn't get a picture of the kids outside with the pumpkins! We got busy with homework that night, then showers, then it was bedtime. Womp womp. I'll try to get a picture of them out there in their costumes Friday evening.
