Last night, Mason, SuperDad, and I carved/decorated pumpkins. I had planned on sitting out of the festivities, but they needed a photographer. Mason’s facial expressions made it worth my time.
He wasn’t huge on the guts at first and kept saying “I’m all done now” and would need coaxing to continue on. The fact that he’s smiling in these first few is PURE LUCK.
And then we switched pumpkins and the real fun began…. Armed with his very own knife, Mason carved his heart out. He then put all the guts back INTO the pumpkin, only to pull them all out again.
He started getting cold, so I cut up an old onesie and made him a classy Halloween Hillbilly shirt. Who needs Pinterest when you have baby clothes and a scissors? LOL
Since I’m anti-pumpkin carving (because I am a weird pumpkin hugger) but Mason couldn’t understand why we were carving two pumpkins and leaving the third one plane, so I gave him mine to “decorate.” Grandma B just bought him a new set of tools that day, so pumpkin decorating went far beyond the stickers I had imagined….
Fortunately for you, the pictures where he was using his pliers are all on my phone and I’m too lazy to get them. LOL
