Tonight was pumpkin carving night at the
Tirch household temporary living situation household. Everyone picked out the design they wanted (for George to carve) and we got started cleaning everything.
Nicholas doesn't really love the whole cleaning process. I think he just pushed a few things around and waited for me to finish up.
Ella actually seems to enjoy it, however.
She's more willing to get her hands dirty even though she thinks it's a little gross.
Jack was enthusiastic about the process. Apparently last year I let him "carve" the lid so he couldn't wait to do it again this year. Basically he stabbed the lid to his pumpkin with one of the plastic carving "knives" from the carving set. It made him happy.
George always does the carving and as you can see (after painting all day at a rental property we own) he was not overly enthused about carving.
Pretty soon he was all alone and the kids told him to call them when their pumpkins were ready. Haha. Poor George.
The kids (now changed into their mismatched jammies) were so happy with the results.
Another successful year of
