Pumpkin Carving

Michael and I promised Olivia that we would carve pumpkins on Friday night, but little did we know how tired we would be. So we convinced her that out of our 4 pumpkins we got at the patch, we could carve the "Olivia" pumpkin. So, she and I got online looking for a sad face pattern. I don't know why, but that's what she wanted. Well, once she saw this ridiculous ghost thing, she HAD to have that one. Michael and I have never claimed to be expert pumpkin carvers, so this was definitely a challenge!

Wow! The pumpkin looks great! I'm feeling kinda bad about myself- we still don't even have a pumpkin yet! I love the last picture. It just reminds me of my girls!
