Sadie has been curious about "pumps" since I first gave her a mini pumpkin while we shopped at the supermarket (she dropped it five seconds later, and it rolled to its bitter end under the cooler of broccoli. I pretended not to notice so I wouldn't have to crawl around on the supermarket floor trying to retrieve it from its new, dark and dusty home).
This, however, is her first look inside. I think the expression could be categorized as "curious with a side order of disgust."
Last year, I think Derrick cleaned all five of the pumpkins we carved.
This year, he was spoiled. He just cleaned Sadie's.
I picked easy templates too because nothing annoys me more than getting halfway through a project and suddenly realizing that I am bored. You can find great templates here: Pumpkin Masters and Hershey's.
Rest assured, we did not make Sadie sort pumpkin seeds. She's actually coloring and eating Cheerios. An unplanned trick of the eye.
Portraits: not so much!
And now (drum roll, please), the grande finale: TA DA!
