This year we went up to a farm in Indiana to pick our own pumpkins. The field was HUGE! RocketMan decided you get more points if the pumpkin is bigger than your head.
Birdman and Gooseygirl used Sharpies back at home to mark their carving lines. RocketMan dug in with his hands but really hated the slimy icky gooeyness of it all. I love that my triplets are now old enough to carve their OWN pumpkins!
