Pumpkin Carvin

Tonight was the night to carve our pumpkin. We did it last year and Jonathan thought it was the coolest thing ever. This year he had fun but when he wasn't allowed to use the sharp knife (duh!) he lost interest. Jonathan got to help pick out what shapes we used to carve the face. It was fun to see his creativity. He wanted triangle eyes like last year, a circle nose, and then he came up with the moon ears all on his own. I was impressed with his knowledge of shapes. Preschool is paying off! :)

Jonathan cleaning out the pumpkin with a big spoon. I tried to convince him to grab it with his hands but he would have nothing to do with that.

That face says it all! He did not like how that felt.

He really wanted to help cut but obviously he wasn't getting his hands on a real knife. This is from a Gerber dinner set and is perhaps the dullest knife in the drawer. :)

Jonathan with our creation.

Jason and the pumpkin. I promise Dan is just out of the picture ready to catch him if he starts to loose his balance.
