A mean set of Halloween jack-o-lanterns.
This was the first year where the kids actually did a lot of the work themselves. Here are the girls in there pumpkin carving outfits.

We would like to pass along the best Halloween tip of the year. Try carving a candle-friendly hatch on the back of your pumpkin. It makes putting the candles in and lighting them much easier, and the big thing for us was that it made them way easier to clean out.
Here is the whole family from left to right: Abby, Emily, Zack, Johnny, Lila. Notice Lila got creative/overzealous and added on some ears, and a few random holes in the back for good measure.
