Through the Eye of a Pumpkin

We carved pumpkins for Family Home Evening this week.  I helped Annie with hers and I botched it something aweful!!  As I was cutting out the fangs for the pumpkin, I accidentally did a triple root canal/nosectomy removing all of them plus the nose, creating a rather large cavity.  The blood sucking pumpkin very quickly turned opera.  Yes, Hudson did say Annie’s pumpkin looked like it was singing opera.  I guess the death aria from the Magic Flute has been on at our house too often.  Annie had no idea what was going on.  She thought it was supposed to look that way.  I wanted to take a picture, but was embarassed with our final outcome so I present to you, “through the eye of a pumpkin.”

After all, it’s not what we are given, but what we do with it…I guess in my case…it was what I did to it.

    The pumpkin was leading you that way. They know how they want to be-
    Somehow everything you do ends up looking great anyways!!

    The picture of the pumpkin looks pretty cool, but I love that young kids always seem to think that mom and dad mean to do the things that we do :) We’ll enjoy it while it lasts right?
