Fall Expreriences: PUMPKIN CARVING

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Mike and I were excited to dig in and pull out the guts of the pumpkin for Cayman to touch and explore. Her tactile sensitivity has been at its all time low lately and we were anxious to watch her reaction to the slimy mess. Knowing our girl well, we figured she would not love the feel of the gooey guts. So I was ready with the camera to capture all the gross faces we anticipated Cayman would make.

And once she had enough of it....

Well, you'll just have to take a look for yourself...

Daddy showed Cayman how to scrape clean the inside walls of the pumpkin.
Then it was Cayman's turn...
She took the spoon...


Put it inside the pumpkin...

And then tried to eat it.


Lisa, I included this picture just for you. Do you see your Grandfather's print so beautifully enhancing our dining room?



I put a pencil in Cayman's hand and with her help, (or more accurately stated, with her resistance), we drew the face of her pumpkin.



The Ghost Mike.


The Headless Mike.


It's a staring contest.
Who do you think won?
