Jack-O-Lantern

On Halloween morning, Stella and I carved a jack-o-lantern together for the very first time...
To prepare for our activity, we read Liz Curtis Higgs's book The Pumpkin Patch Parable.  It is an awesome story for kids that uses a jack-o-lantern to illustrate how God cleans all the yucky stuff out of our hearts and makes us His special works of art...
For our jack-o-lantern, we used Stella's pumpkin from the WeeCare Pumpkin Patch.  Unfortunately, this pumpkin had been dropped several times, which led to a large rotten spot on the bottom...
At this point in the carving Stella was not real sure how she felt about our project...
She tried to keep our work area neat...
We eventually cut the bottom out of the pumpkin, too.  Stella helped remove the pieces we carved out for the face...
We got it!
Posing with our creation.  He had a little trauma to his lower lip...
