Pumpkin time!

Grace helping dad clean out her pumpkin.

Being very careful with the knife.

Dan, Grace and little Batman(Will).

Yep, it's almost that time. Halloween is Friday. Dan was home this afternoon and while William was taking a nap we did our annual pre-Halloween ritual of the carving of the pumpkins. Grace has been anxiously waiting to do this since we picked the pumpkins over a week ago. She helped clean them all out and even carved her own with some help. William woke up right as we were carving his so he got to see some of the process too. It was better not to have a 2 year old 'assist' with his own pumpkin. A 2 year old wielding a knife probably isn't a good thing. ;)

Great pumpkins. Tell Grace I am impressed!

Yes, I so agree about knife weilding toddlers. I failed to mention in my blog that Ethan picked up one of the knives the day thast we carved ours and was walking straight at my back with it to "show me" Can you imagine??

Hope that it is a spooktacular Halloween for your dynamic duo :)
