Pumpkin Carving Session

My daughter and I had the best time this past Sunday while carving a large pumpkin on our kitchen floor.  She is nearly 2.5 years old and this was her first real experience with the carving process.  The previous Halloween she did have the chance to paint a pumpkin, but was not part of the carving process due to her age.  This year she was very interested in helping papa and mama create a jack-o-lantern and we agreed that it was time to show her how it was done.  After the "gutting" of the pumpkin, Kaia tried her hand at pulling all of the goo from within the pumpkin.  As one can see in the adjacent images, we had a great time and we were both happy to have caught the event with the digital camera, as mama was recovering from a cold and could not participate :(
