Pumpkin Carving

Mr. T actually got his hands in it this year! I think it's the first time he would touch the inside of a pumpkin.

Have you ever had to count the number of seeds inside a pumkin? We did. Miss E's science homework asked her to compare and contrast 2 pumpkins including counting their seeds. Well, I painstakingly sorted out all the seeds from one of them and counted them while she worked on hers. When I got to 500 (no joke) I told her to forget the homework we would just put "a lot" as our answer. Now I'm not sure if we are setting the right precedent here but the thought of helping her count out 500 seeds from her pumpkin at 6:45 at night seemed daunting. It was more fun to carve them anyway.


  1. ick ick ick... as you can tell, this here mom did NOT do the pumpkins with her kids. Daddy 'n Grampa did and that's the way it had to be. Period.

  2. Ya, I still don't put my hands in pumpkins either. :)
