I started out my day trying to do something in the Halloween spirit with the kids. I thought of carving the pumpkins that we had just bought while visiting the pumpkin patch. We picked out pretty small pumpkins to carve into our very own Jack O' Lanterns. I figured the smaller the pumpkin, the less work it'll be. I have never carved a pumpkin before and was pretty excited to try it out now that I have kids to share that experience with.
As I sat down and stared at these cute, perfectly shaped pumpkins, I realized that they looked beautiful as they were. In tact. I glanced over at a bag of HUGE oranges on the kitchen counter and the rest is as follows...and to my surprise, which I can only guess, was MUCH easier and less of a mess.
