So Alora came to use the other day and said "Mom and Dad, wouldn't it be just delightful to carve a Halloween pumpkin?"
So we had a snack and discussed all of our potential designs, did a little research and came the perfect idea!
First step was to distract Alora with enough food so Jake could trace her little hand.
Then I cut out his drawing and traced it onto our pumpkin.
Added some lips and a curly hairline (...resemble someone you might know?).
Then started carving away. Alora lost interest at this point but Cosmo was a good help.
It wasn't until I showed her the "guts" that she wheeled over with her go-cart to check out what was going on.
So there you have it ~ meet Mrs. Pumpkin.
Alora didn't quite know what to think at first and just sat there waving at her new friend until she got brave enough to sit by her.
