Today we carved our first pumpkin. Our first pumpkin as a couple, and baby Jax’s first pumpkin. I hadn’t carved a pumpkin since I was a kid, and even then I don’t recall how much of the carving I actually did.
We decided to carve out Mike from Monsters Inc. Jax has a set of footie pj’s and a cap that are Mike so they sort of turned into his Halloween costume since we won’t be going trick or treating with him this year.
Hubby started the adventure with carving the top off and cleaning out the guts. Jax got to play with the lid and what guts and seeds were hanging from it. He enjoyed it and even enjoyed the munching on his hands covered in the pumpkin juice.
The final product I think turned out pretty darn good for our first pumpkin. Maybe next year we will take on 2!
