Pumpkin carving is the one family tradition Kartik and I have that predates our kids. We started pumpkin carving our first year after moving into our home.
We've done it every year since, but now we have a lot more help.
This year my dad gave us a gigantic pumpkin to carve.
It took extra muscle to get the top off. (Amaani's taking a supervisory role).
And, of course, a huge pumpkin means lots of pumpkin guts to scoop out. (we outsourced that to the kids)
I hope everyone had a good Halloween. We have so many relatives and friends in the New York and New Jersey area affected by the storm-- we are thinking and praying for all of you to get power, water, and normalcy soon!
