Pumpkin Carving....

On Thursday Wendy went to school with her new shirt on and criss cross pig tails. These are the bottom photos. I love playing with her long hair.

Saturday we went to a pumpkin patch of sorts. We didn't buy one from them because the woman wasn't very nice. So, Holly and I went and picked one out at the Market. Later that evening Wendy and Holly chose a template and Holly carved it. Of course everyone knows that you have to take the pulp and seeds out before you can do this; so this was Wendy's job. She thought it was a gross feeling. We got tickled at her. Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of that process. ha
She has learned on PBS Sid the Science Kid" about pumpkins when they are fresh and pumpkins as they decompose. Mike didn't realize that she knew the word, but boy she does and she knows how to use it correctly too. She is a very smart girl!

Oh by the way, I didn't realize how tired Wendy was until I downloaded these photos. The one of her and Holly was taken pretty late and she has this look on her face like she is just barely hanging in there. I do remember it wasn't long after the clean up she fell asleep. ha

Enjoy the photos....
