The fifth annual Kapellas Karve-Off lived up to its billing – if lived up to its billing means a 2 year old wanting to grab the carving tools and cutting into her own pumpkin, that is. Isla was very excited to get things underway. Especially after being surprised by a special Gabba friend template to carve.
Strangely enough, she was initially reluctant to stick her hands in the pumpkin.
After some coaxing, she re-discovered her scooping technique from last year and was flinging pumpkin innards around the table.
"Hold it for me while I scoop, Daddy."
Looks at those pumpkin guts! Eeeewwwww!
"Do you see my Foofa mask? Do you see it? Do you see it?" Yes we do. Yes we do.
A perfect Foofa!
What a proud little carver!
Once the kiddos went to bed, it was time for the second round of the Karve-off. It was a quick effort due to a restless little baby that wasn't quite ready for bed, but Paul and I managed to use our years of "kompetition" to create some pretty cool and spooky jack-o-lanterns.
