He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress and for his children it will be a refuge.

Pumpkin carving

I know I have at least 5 other posts that I've promised that I'm way backed up on but I wanted to jump ahead a little to present times or I'll never get caught up!

Have I said yet that I love fall in the US SOOO much!  The weather is gorgeous, the trees are beautiful and there are so many fun things to do.  The girls were so excited about carving their pumpkin.  We bought one of those really cheapy looking pumpkin carving kits from Target.  I was very skeptical but that  thing works!  It made it very easy and the girls (well, Maddie was the only one actively participating by that point) but they were able to carve easily too.

Dad made the hole in the top...

 Maddie was the only one willing to dig her hand in, to pull out the pumpkin goop..

(I feel the need to add here, that although there are no pictures to document it was yours truly who thoroughly cleaned out the pumpkin innards...  Maddie posed for the cute little picture, Abbey read a book somewhere, Jason caught up his fantasy football team and I did the dirty work... but that's my job as mom, right :))
Hard at work carving...
Somehow we managed to not take a picture of the finished product, but here's one of the girls from Halloween night and you can see the jack-o-lantern at their feet.
