Wanna hear a silly secret?

My kids & I have never carved pumpkins! My mom gets angry when I say this, she seems to think we carved pumpkins every year. I, on the other hand, have no recollection of this. I was the youngest child, my oldest sister being 12 years older than me. I think mom & dad carved pumpkins with her and my brother, maybe my other sister too. I think I was forgotten...or as I like to say to tease mom..."you were burned out by the time I came along." Boy, she really hates when I say that! LOL

So, I believe as a result of all this "pumpkin carving neglect", if you will, my poor children have never had the experience either. I simply never thought about it. (To make matters worse, would you believe dh never carved pumpkins with his family?) As my sister-in-law learned of this shocking fact over the weekend, mortified, she thought it necessary to remedy the situation immediately. (I'll save the I've-never-been-sledding issue for another day) So here are my children (along with my niece) carving pumpkins. I love the faces they're making! My only regret? That I didn't have my sister-in-law take a picture of me pulling all those yummy pumpkin guts out! I, personally, loved the squishy guts!
