We love our traditions and every October, we meet with my best friend to carve pumpkins. We really are not the best carvers and our pumpkins did look a little bit sorry for themselves! I get the girls to draw their designs on their pumpkins and Mia always draws the smallest features that she wants me to cut out. I really am awful at carving so i just go at it with a knife and hope for the best. They both always seemed pleased with the results so i guess that is all that matters. I have no idea how people manage to do intricate details and designs! Maybe one year, i will watch some tutorials and get some proper tools and give it a go, but whilst the girls are young, i want it to be all about them and their own designs.
The girls drew their designs and then i cut off the tops for them. They spent a good half an hour scooping and getting thoroughly filthy and sticky! I think this is their favourite part! After they had scooped, Hannah and i cut our their designs for them whilst they ate chocolate buttons.
I love our traditions so much. It means the world to me. Even though we do this every year, i haven't made a creative film of them carving and wanted to this year. I haven't done an inside video for a long time but i love the result and, to us, it is all about the memories and the feeling we get as we watch it back. I do love creating these films for them and i hope you like it too. I know this is one we shall be watching over and over again this year!
