Boo!

I posted about our trip to the Pumpkin Patch on my other blog. Tonight Heather decided she was ready to carve her jack o lantern. We realized early on why she's never done this before. Daddy always does the pumpkin carving and tonight as she cleaned the mess out of the inside of her pumpkin we all remembered how much she hates that part. When Heather was little she was always very fussy about keeping herself and her clothes very clean. She would not play in the dirt or even the grass, only the concrete patio. If she got her clothes dirty, they must be changed right away. As she got older she did learn to enjoy the dirt and even got messy, but when it came to pumpkins she'd have no part of removing pumpkin and seeds from within. But tonight, she was on her own so to speak. Marty helped her get started but this was her project and therefore her job to finish cleaning it out and readying it for carving. She managed to get the job done so she could get on with the carving.

Good job Heather! I agree totally that the stuff inside the pumpkins smell bad and are so slimey! The girls did theirs last week and were not so thrilled when Dave said that they had to take out the seeds and inside! :-)
