Pumpkin Time!

Last night we carved our pumpkins. Ellie did a most of the face work, and Brian did most of the carving. I cleaned two of them out, one was given to us already cleaned out! I also carved the little one, and even roasted pumpkin seeds. Then we went outside to do a candlelit pumpkin preview. I think Ellie had fun, after we blew out the candles and started going back inside, she said, "I want again." She didn't quite understand that we had to wait one more night.

Before we went inside, we saw a deer in the street, tried getting a picture but it was too dark. Later that night, that same deer must have had a hankering for a midnight snack. One of our pumpkin lids is gone, and one is munched on, and another pumpkin face has been munched on too. I wasn't sure if deer ate pumpkins, otherwise we would have brought them inside last night. Oh well, hope it was tasty!

Oh I love Ellies coloring on her pumpkin! Did you carve all those lines for her? Did the deer eat the candles?
