Pumpkin Carving

Joe and I continued our yearly tradition tonight of carving our pumpkins while watching the movie Halloween. We didn't buy any carving utensils or patterns this year like normal, so we just winged it.

My face is all rosy because we had just taken Jack out for a walk.

Joe channeling Michael Myers. :)

Here are the final products. Joe's is on the right and mine is on the left. I thought Joe's turned out awesome! I didn't think he was going to pull it off with the big knives we were using, but he did.

After carving, we separated all the seeds for roasting.



They turned out so good! And now we're just sitting on the coach eating pumpkin seeds and watching episodes of Lost online. (We're starting from the beginning and are now in Season 2 and totally addicted).

Also, we had another breakthrough tonight! While we were carving pumpkins, we looked over and Ava was playing with Jackson! She was jumping on him and then she grabbed the toy he was playing with and starting playing tug of war! She hasn't played in over 3 months and it was just the most amazing thing! She is really back.... our little girl is finally back. :)


  1. Joe's pumpkin looks like Mike from Monsters, Inc. was that intentional? Great job guys!

  2. We just pulled the idea from a list we found online. But now that you mention it, it does look like Mike!
