The pumpkins in our house were worked in both the traditional way (carving - Will & Franziska) as well as painted (Vivian & Annelee) and even Mr. Potatohead managed to get in on the act of pumpkin decorating.

Painting pumpkins is great for the kids ... I think I will steal that idea not just for this year, but probably the next few.

Very tentative beginnings

Who needs paint brushes!

Making sure to use every color we have.  And that the stem is painted, too.

And from one second to the next we are All! Done!  Mommy!!!
