One of my least favorite Halloween things to do as an adult is carve pumpkins. It's just so messy and if you've met me for even 5 minutes, you'd know that I am not a messy person. But, one of the most awesome things about becoming a parent is that we get to reinvent the things that aren't terribly fun as an adult and see them through the eyes of our kids. And let me tell you...carving a pumpkin for a kid is a BIG deal. Even my kids who hate to be dirty....And hate to stick their hands inside the pumpkin. They may make Mr. Howard and I do most of the work and I may have to stick my hand in a pumpkin more often than I'd care to, but the prize of seeing my kids giggle and laugh is pretty awesome!
