I know this is the weekend for carving pumpkins and eating too much sugar, but I really don't like to cut my big pumpkin. I like it to last through Thanksgiving. So the kids and I compromised. We each got a small pumpkin (in addition to my big pumpkin and the white one hubby bought for me). I used my apple corer to make those perfect little polka dots. They chose to paint theirs. Something their crazy mom said about bugs n such.
