Well we waiting until the last minute (Halloween night) to carve our pumpkin this year and to be honest we only cut the top off and gave up. But that was enough to have a lot of fun and get really messy! Luella started our carving session by hugging and kissing her pumpkin and then she colored on him with her crayons. Daddy took over after that. We didn't play for long before the slimy pumpkin was too much for Luella to handle so we gave her a bath in the kitchen sink.
