Pumpkin Goop

This afternoon found us up to our elbows in pumpkin innards and L kept saying "this is so goopy." I obviously thought he was beyond adorable and quickly dug out the camera to capture our pumpkin carving activity. (I threatened them into this picture, by the way. Does the end justify the means when it comes to photo ops as well or is that strictly a Russian mafia thing?)



In any case, we all had fun (except for the picture taking and accompanying threats) and have some pretty neat pumpkins to show for it - Designed by S, I might add. Too bad my photo skills aren't up to low light photography. I'll dig out the tripod and see if I can get a shake-free shot tomorrow night.



In other news, I took S to a cub scout activity tonight. A few of his friends are doing scouts this year and I think we will sign him up. I was very much the indoor, book-reading, doll playing kind of child, so scouts is (are?) completely uncharted territory for me. I hope he likes it. And benefits from it. And I sincerely hope I wil never have to do any camping as a result of signing him up...
