One of my favorite things that we do each year is carve our pumpkin. It’s a great excuse for me to dress up Zoe, drink beer, and take a lot of pictures. We’ve done it every year except last year (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012). This year was Zachary’s first year carving a pumpkin. He “watched” as best a 4-month-old can watch. We propped him up because he hates laying down and were able to hold his attention for much longer than we thought we would be able to.

Zach’s first look at the inside of a pumpkin.
We switched positions as Daddy showed Zach what the inside of a pumpkin looks like…
Watching Daddy carve and clean out the pumpkin.
Zoe gets in on the action. I’m pretty sure she thought she could try to sit inside it like it was a box, haha.
Jay hard at work.
I didn’t get a picture of it, but Zach did pick up a big handful of the “pumpkin guts” when we put it in front of him, haha. Here’s Jay showing him the final product.
