Michael has been attending religious education classes (aka CCD) at the church we attend every Wednesday night since the school year started. Last night they asked the kids to bring a pumpkin to carve in the parish gym. We got the pumpkin that we picked from the church down the street and brought it with us, along with some carving tools and patterns. The pumpkin was not quite big enough to use the patterns though.
We were served hot dogs and chips for dinner, even though we already ate at home. Michael has had a pretty big appetite lately and ate a hot dog, chips and cookies for dessert. Then the carving began. I worked on a pattern and Michael helped to cut it out once I had the outline done. It was fun to work on it together as we didn't carve a pumpkin last year.
Here are some pictures of the finished product:
