Last weekend Noli and mommy wanted to carve another Halloween jack-o-lantern -- so off we went to the nearby Farmer's Market in search of just the right pumpkin.
From yesterday's post you already know that we found some yummy goodies at the market I usually go to, but they didn't have anything but the small pie-making pumpkins left. So they sent us off to another Farmer's Market that's also nearby. I'm lucky enough to be smack dab in between two great Farmer's Markets so no matter which way I'm going, I usually pass by one or the other!
Well, the second Farmer's Market had bunches of big pumpkins (and of course I didn't think to take a pic of all that pumpkin goodness)! But we found a good carving one -- a pumpkin worthy of Noli's artwork!
So after we had our mac 'n cheese (and little green peas) (if you read yesterday's post, you know why that's in italics....) and mommy got off from work, the pumpkin carving began! I left that chore up to the girls; I was on hand as official picture-taker.
Noli's job was to scoop the goop....
a job she immensely enjoyed....
Mommy did the carving
Watch those fingers!
We're not ready to let Noli loose with a sharp knife just yet.... butter knives are more her style but they don't carve pumpkins so well. (Although she did cut her chicken the other night with a not-extremely-sharp steak knife. That was an experience -- I was hovering over her like a mama hen!)
We'll probably really let her use knives when she's, oh say, thirty!!
One happy Noli with her Kitty Pumpkin!
