The girls love to draw on their pumpkins. Last year, neither wanted theirs carved so I painted both of them. This year they didn't want them carved (because they didn't want to clean them out once they saw Mommy's) so they painted theirs.
They had a blast painting their pumpkins. We kept them through Thanksgiving before we had to throw them out. Cailey swears that she will carve hers next year. Mommy isn't so sure. We will see next year.
