Do you carve pumpkins every year?

I've carved pumkins every year since I was able to dig guts out of a pumkin. lol. I'm continuing this family tradition with my family and plan a get-together every year for family and friends to get together and carve together. I love it! It's so much fun and visiting with family and friends is special. How many of you do this or another family tradition this time of year?

  • We sure do! And the ones who are not old enough to carve, they get to paint pumpkins! We always have a blast doing it, and make it a special night for everyone!

  • Yes! My boys are adults now, and they still carve pumpkins with us! It's kind of a big deal for us as well.

  • I give my kids Sharpie markers and they make "art" on them. Maybe we'll carve some when they're a little older.

  • Yes, we carve them every year - at least one. We also paint them and decorate them with all kinds of crafty things. When we go to the pumpkin patch we always end up with several for each girl and then a ton that I just have to have too. We are a pumpkin loving family. lol

  • yes, we now have the grands come over to our home - hub does most of the carving - sometimes grands just paint faces on pumpkins - we pretty much leave it up to them - whatever they want to do - last year we baked the seeds and made our own pumpkin seeds - messy, but allot of fun ...

  • I have for the past two years. My parents never did anything like that with me, but I started doing it when I met my husband. My daughter will hopefully be able to join in this year and help. :)
