Pumpkin decorating=fun times

Saturday I gutted the pumpkins...I tried the Martha Stewart method of cutting the bottoms off instead of the tops and it made cleaning them so much faster and easier.  Thank you Martha Stewart. 

After the pumpkins were cleaned I set them outside to be carved later and got Ava set up to decorate her mini pumpkins.  She really got into it and in fact didn't want to stop.

 She wanted me to do some so I added a smiley face on this one.  The rest was all done by Ava :)

The finished products :)  She liked doing this so much that I think we will have to do another painting project soon.  I think I will get some little clay ornaments for her to paint for our tree.

I didn't end up carving the pumpkins until Sunday and I forgot to take pictures.  I did snap a few with my phone though.

Holidays just keep getting better and better the older Ava gets.  I can't wait to see how she will react at Christmas.  I can even let her help decorate the tree this year.
