There's nothing like waiting until the LAST minute, but Elise and I were finally able to carve/paint our pumpkins on Halloween!! I got it all set up and Elise got really excited when she saw what was in store! I quickly devised a painting smock out of a trash bag for her to wear so she wouldn't ruin her clothes and, of course, some still got on her shirt- but that's okay!
Elise is a very focused and attentive girl when she wants to be! Activities like coloring and painting she wants it to be perfect :) She had a really fun time with her pumpkin!

I don't know if you can see it very well, but I carved an owl into my pumpkin! Elise was really excited when I lit mine and put it out on the front porch. She kept trying to go out and look at it, it was really cute! We had a great time and I see many more carving nights in our future!
