      Do you carve a pumpkin for Halloween or do you not bother?

      We get a pumpkin every year for Halloween and me and the children will each help to scoop out the pumpkin and carve a scary face into it :) the children love to get involved in making a pumpkin for Halloween and get really excited when we place a candle inside.

      Do you ever experiment with the face on your pumpkin or do you just do the usual?

      We don't do anything for Halloween.
      What do you do with the insides of the pumpkin Shortie ? :)

      I am not keen on pumpkin myself neither is anyone else in the household to be honest. I have in the past given my mum the inside of the pumpkin for her to use in cooking.

      I had never carved a pumpkin before last year. Growing up for some reason we never did that. But, my husband always carved pumpkins so he and I do it together now as our own little family tradition. I think it's fun, albeit a little gross. lol

      I love carving pumpkins! I do one every year. I like to do those kind where you get the pattern and cut it out. I am pretty good at it and they look very cool. Unfortunately they always seem to go bad quicker- since more is cut out it's more exposed to the air :(

      We carve a pumpkin, or two or three, every year. We should be going to the pumpkin patch this weekend to pick out our pumpkins, which means carving time is upon us. My son gets really excited about it. Last year he became very attached to his pumpkin and didn't want to throw it away.
