Pumpkin Carving 101

Tonight was Pumpkin carving night! The kids had a lot of fun. (Despite the sickness running rampant. Luke bit the dust tonight. Arghhhh!) I was proud of the kids. They all had their own idea of what they wanted their pumpkin to look like. I started last year telling them about how we are like jack-o-lanterns to God. We have all this gunk inside us and he reaches in and scrapes it all out. Then he puts His Son in us to let His light shine out of us to be a light to those who see us. I know they are a little young to get all the symbolism, but I hope that as the years pass, they will understand it more and more.

And Lance roasted the pumpkin seeds so the kids could have a treat! Yum!
