Pumpkin Carving and Decorating 2011
Last Friday my hubby had the day off from work and we were really hoping to head out to a pumpkin patch, but it was pretty cold and we figured it wasn’t a great idea. He took Adaline out to the store where they picked out a big pumpkin, smaller pumpkin, and a bag full of gourds that Adaline calls “little pumpkins”.
Since Adaline’s still a little too young for carving, and I don’t have any cookie cutters, paint, or glitter, I decided to let her decorate her pumpkin using markers. This was her first marker-related experience and she thoroughly enjoyed it, although she was a little irritated that the colors didn’t look right sometimes (because of the orange pumpkin many colors just looked black).
