For us, Halloween always begins with each child carving their own pumpkin :D
We try to let them choose what they would like to do and then do most of it by themselves! We often end up with lots of mistakes, but it's the trial and error that they learn from.....right?!
Sophie & Emily have become very proficient with their carvings, and we really enjoy seeing what they will come up with each year!
Allie, on the other hand, is great with paint designs! She did this "Z" for me....
Emily had a cute idea this year! She did a big pumpkin that ate the ear off of the baby pumpkin next to it!!!!!
Jacob wanted a spider man pumpkin to go with his costume, and he decided to enlist the help of big sister to get the job done!
Sophie carved a wolf on the front side of her pumpkin and trees on the back that made a really neat shadow against the rock when lit!
Here are random shots of the kids' costumes in no particular order ;D
And the big candy dump at the end of trick-or-treating!!!
