Pumpkin Carving.

We decided to carve pumpkins this weekend because Garth has never done it before. To get in the spirit of things we cracked open an apple cider beer:Time to open up the pumpkin and scoop out the guts:
And now, the finished products. It's funny that they look pretty much the same, but here is mine:Garth's:Proud of our pumpkin carving skills:Since Garth had never had pumpkin seeds either, we had to make some to finish off the experience:It seems to be a success because Garth declared this a new family tradition!

Pumpkins are so much fun! We were late in getting our act together this year. Do you think this weekend will be too late to carve one?
