Growing up, we almost never carved pumpkins. It's a mess, it's hard for little ones to participate, and the pumpkin goes bad so quickly. So what we did instead was paint pumpkins! (Okay, having several little ones painting is a mess, too, but at least it's not a pumpkin-innards kind of a mess.) Ahhh, good times painting pumpkins...
Mr. MadeIt and I decided to continue the pumpkin painting tradition in our family. So for Family Night last night, we had our first ever Pumpkin Painting Night!
Here we are, hard at work. Wow, we look so serious! Except for Boo. She was just enjoying her sucker.
...Which stained her mouth blue.
Mr. MadeIt's pumpkin decided to be an Indian for Halloween. (Ignore the ketchup bottle in the background; we had just finished dinner.)
Boo wanted to keep her pumpkin au natural. She was very adamant about keeping her cute little pumpkin as is. (She's very adamant about everything these days. I think it's because she's two now.)
And my pumpkin would like to wish you a
And happy crafting.
