Carving Pumpkins

Carving_pumpkinsCarving pumpkins is a tradition.  We went to Union Square Greenmarket on Saturday afternoon to pick our pumpkins.  What would Halloween be without an afternoon of carving pumpkins and toasting pumpkin seeds?

The nice thing is that the kids were psyched too.  They reminded me that we have to make the gingerbread house for Xmas too. 

Of course when the kids were trying to come upPumpkins_1 with an idea about what to carve where do you think they looked for creativity?  The Internet of course.  After everyone did their search, printed out their concepts, they were ready to roll. 

All and all, a wonderful kick-off to the beginnings of this festive season.
