WEll this year we didn't go to the pumpkin patch. The had pumpkins at our local Save Mart that were huge and only $3, so we just went ahead and bought them. I know, lame, but we just didn't have time, be only bought them a week ago, so bad planning on the parents part!
This year the kids actually stuck their hands into the pupkins, but again, the carving and everything else was left to mom and dad. So only 2 pumpkins got carved. And we tried to do cool designs, but next year, I think we will just do the typical pumpkin face. This was too much work.
