The annual Petersen pumpkin carving contest was again a complete success. We had four entries this year. Mom was supposed to be an impartial judge, so of course she declared everyone a winner. SMH.
As the kids get older Pumpkin carving takes on a different dimension in the Petersen household. Every year the carvings get more elaborate and I actually have less to do. We have several of the carving kits that allow you to saw the pumpkins while following a picture. This year Jill went with a very traditional carving, but she insisted that she could do the whole thing by herself. And you want to know something, she was right. MJ went with a witch riding a broomstick with a half moon in the background. For some reason we didn’t capture a picture of it. Although it really came out great!
