It's that pumpkin carving time of the year again. And in true Toews style, we got the job done with some help from Erik's power tools.
I mean, how handy is a hole saw (with various sizes) for making perfect holes in a pumpkin...?
And after trying some traditional knife-carving on Micah's jack-o-lantern design, Erik thought to himself, why struggle with a knife when you can use a drill and a skill saw?
I don't think pumpkin carving will ever be the same at our house...
Yesterday I snapped some pictures of the kids before they went to school.
(btw - this elephant costume has gotten a LOT of use. Micah, Keziah & Silas have each worn it at least once before!)
Since there wasn't much happening on our street for trick-or-treating, we headed to Doug & Elissa's for the evening.
After a wardrobe change on Micah's part, we got a picture of our motley crew of trick-or-treaters... (posing beside our power-tooled pumpkins).
Unfortunately Micah started dragging his feet about 20 minutes in, and Erik brought him back with a fever and a headache :(
Now there is a LOT of candy and chocolate in the house. I think I may have to hide it from myself...
