Bugga was "driving" his pumpkin by holding onto the ears as if they were a steering wheel. :) Buddha was fascinated.

Pumpkin Carving FHE
Last night for Family Home Evening, we carved pumpkins. Okay, The Chief and I carved pumpkins, and the boys got to stick silly faces on their pumpkins (thanks for the idea, Brooklyn!). We had a lot of fun. I can't really remember ever having carved pumpkins in my life, though I'm sure I have knowing my dad. He always liked to do fun things as a family. Anyway, Buddha got to pick each person's pumpkin, then he dictated to The Chief which face pieces went where on his own pumpkin. Bugga got help from me, then ate Cheerios the rest of the evening as he watched Mommy and Daddy carve their pumpkins. The Chief took a very traditional approach using a stencil (though his method of stencil application was rather innovative...staples!). I, on the other hand, decided to free-hand my pumpkin as is painfully evident. :) But I had a great time doing it, so that's all that matters I suppose.
