A Goode Tradition: Punkin' Carvin'

It's Punkin' Carvin' night at the Goodes. We had an unusual amount of pumpkins this year, so we made the best of it!  Big thanks to Aunt Mary and Grendells for all the great pumpkins :)

We were so excited to carve pumpkins this year because Addie could really help and experience all the fun.  In years past we have done the stenciled pumpkins and loved them, but this year we went freestyle and had a blast doing it!

We started out by cutting the tops off all the pumpkins...

and Addie helped gutting them

After she had enough (look at that face...lol!) she and Gilbert watched Daddy gut the pumpkins

Daddy is such a good gutter ;)

Addie loved the cool new hats...Doesn't that poor pumpkin look scared?

Before long, we had made a REALLY big mess

But it was for a good reason ;)

This guy got a little sick

Betcha can't figure out who made that dude...

These are my guys

and these guys...

ooooooohhhh spooooky!

We had so much fun we might just not go back to stencils anytime soon. 

I heart our little Goode Traditions.
