Carving Time

You'd think with the last name of CARVER we would be experts at carving turkey, wood and especially pumpkins. Think again! I must confess, we cheat. We buy those Pumpkin Master Halloween Carving books, complete with scraper and mini-saw. We tape the pattern on to our pumpkin, trace around the design and then go to town with the tool kit. This year, Kaylee and I teamed up and Josh and Jacob worked together. We let the kids choose our "cheat sheet".


I noticed that there are free templates on their website: http://www.pumpkinmasters.com/free_patterns_main.asp . Wish we would have known that before we forked out $4.99.


Here are some pictures to document the fun.

I love that it bothers you that you spent $4.99 when you could have gotten it for free. Your a girl after my own heart!
