Then when we were in Abu Dhabi, the pumpkins were insanely expensive because they were imported from America. I'm talking $65 for a regular carving pumpkin. As much as I wanted E to experience the fun of pumpkin carving last year, I just wasn't going to spend that kind of money!
So, of course, I have been counting down to the month of October since we arrived back in the States. I just couldn't wait for Emerson to have all of these fun Halloween experiences that weren't possible overseas. I knew that she would love pumpkin carving and she certainly did! She was so excited when I brought the pumpkin home and she loved picking out the design. She told us it was a happy pumpkin!
She hates being dirty so she really did not like touching the guts at all! But she did enjoy helping Jesse do the carving and she was thrilled with the end result.
It's so exciting to think that I'll have two sweet girls to carve pumpkins with next Halloween!
