Our FIRST Pumpkin Carving...SERIOUSLY!!
OK, we know this will sound CRAZY to many of you but Anthony and I have never carved pumpkin's before. We are 30 years old, I know! Both of our families just didn't do pumpkin carving so we've never ventured out on our own to try this out until now! Katy has been trying to get me to do this for two years. However, two years ago I just felt like Harrison was too young to really enjoy it and last year we were moving to NC.
Side note...can you believe it's been a year now since we moved to Raleigh?? I can't believe it's been that long. Our house in VA was totally empty of all our belongings on Halloween and we had to Trick-or-Treat in my mom's neighborhood...which was still fun. :)
Anyway, we carved our first pumpkin's last night! We had a great time! Anthony wouldn't hear of anything simple...triangle eyes, nose, mouth...he wanted his first pumpkin carving to be memorable! He did a GREAT job! The boys both helped with the first one and then after they were in bed he decided to work on a more difficult design on his own. I think pumpkin carving is his new passion! ha! just kidding! We had a FABULOUS time and this will definitely become a new Williams' family tradition! :)
More later on our Trick-or-Treating tonight!
