We Gutted One

A pumpkin that is. And it took much concentration as you can see in the first pic.

I am now toasting the seeds but don't know how long to leave them in the oven. I think I was supposed to let them dry first. I don't remember liking them after trying them last year but it was fun to do with G this year.

G drew the face on and I cut it out. I had thought about letting G cut but the thing was a bit thick. We didn't even lose a finger which was a distinct possibility with my clumsiness. And G said, "I didn't think it would turn out great but it did!"

I said, "Me either, G. I was afraid it wouldn't turn out good because of my cutting."

Maybe later this week we will light it outside.

Really cute! We are skipping the whole carving thing this year, since none of us really like to do it anyway! ;0)
