Last night at 9:30 we decided to carve our pumpkins.
We have a rule about picking out pumpkins. We tell the kids that they can have any pumpkin they want as long as they can pick it up and carry it.
Most of the kids will choose a reasonably sized pumpkin except for Aaron. He chooses the biggest one he can find, then struggles to carry it around.
We cut the tops of the pumpkins, lifted the lids and scooped out the seeds and pumpkin entrails.
When Aaron opened his, the entire inside of the pumpkin was covered with mold.
Fortunately, we had bought an extra pumpkin so Aaron was able to carve one.
But Max was fascinated with the moldy pumpkin. He kept lifting the lid to check out the insides.
Finally, he said "That pumpkin did also poop in it's pants, it also needs to have it's cars taked away."
And yes, this was cute the first 40 or 50 times that he said it, but after that it got a little old.
I have more to write about Halloween, but I'm too tired so here's a fun video.
