It's about that time for some fun... pumpkin carving!!
We always have a blast doing this each year, and the pumpkin design is a BIG DEAL. The whole family usually searchs online for templates or inspiration, then we get out the old sketchbook and doodle our designs till we have it perfect!! And each year we find that we must have one scary pumpkin, and one goofy pumpkin.
