One night while browsing Pinterest...I'm sure to avoid doing something that probably needed to be done...I found a cute idea for a Puffy Paint Ghost here. I have been wanting to do some puffy painting with the kids and I thought this sounded like a fun, festive activity!

pumpkin prayer as we went along...kind of (we were a little busy and had gunky hands)...but we covered the gist. ( : Both Lilly and Reid's KDO classes had read The Pumpkin Patch Parable which is a really good book that helps add a little Jesus into pumpkin carving, too.
Cleaning out the insides! Reid took one handful out and said, "I need to go wash my hands! I'm done!" Haha! And Matt said he was good, too. Lilly and I got the rest of it, though, and had a good time doing it! Please notice she is a princess cheerleader. ( ;
Then we started carving! I used a dry erase marker to mark the face and then we just worked on cutting it out. We got one of those "safer" little carving knifes from Wal-Mart for .97 cents and the kids were able to easily carve so I am glad we made that little purchase.
Matt getting into the carving action and Reid checking it out.
Finishing it up! Reid was all for the washing and carving of the pumpkin.
