Autumnal pumpkin carving is a long-held family tradition and this year we made the decision to turn a birthday celebration into a pre-Halloween event!
The birthday girl turned 6, and was allowed for the first time to carve her own pumpkin.
Adding in hair and whiskers completed the look, although Sophia is a realist. She took one look at her finished product and said, “I think next year when I turn seven I’ll do a better job.”
Minions made an appearance this year.
Some artists prefer drawing to carving and Karina was very happy with her Minion.
Creative hands at work…including a battery operated pumpkin knife!
Not a bad way to spend a day, I’d say.
“Backward, turn backward,
O Time in your flight
make me a child again just for to-night!”
