Pumpkin Carving

      Our Nebraska grandchildren & their parents visited over the weekend.  They brought with them  some of their pumpkins & gourds to use for decorations at the Celebrate Fall Festival we're having on Saturday.
      One of the activities for the festival is The Great Pumpkin Carving Contest.  The boys (ages 6 & 8) and I decided to carve a pumpkin to enter since they don't have to be present to win and the $50 First Prize sounded enticing to them.  We found the idea for the carving on the internet and were pleased with the result.  I was amazed how much of it the boys were able to do!  We made a great mess of the kitchen but the fun and memories were worth it!
       If you live in the area get busy carving and come on down to the Festival!
