Pumpkin Poop


or more commonly known as pumpkin guts!

Sweet Emmalee was excited to scoop out the Pumpkin Poop tonight when they came over to carve pumpkins!

I think this was the first year that the girls actually partook in the actual pumpkin carving process.  In the past they have enjoyed the idea of scooping out the “pumpkin poop” and carving the pumpkin, but once the tops were cut off the pumpkin and they looked inside they quickly changed their minds!  Chickens!

2014 was a whole new year for them.  This year they were all in!  The both scooped their pumpkins and then assisted in the carving of them!

Emmalee chose to draw a face on her pumpkin and Brandi carved it out, while Maddie & I each picked a pattern off the internet and carved them.  In the end I think all three turned out pretty darn well!

Mason didn’t help, but did enjoy emptying out my mom’s linen napkin drawer, throwing the napkin rings all over the kitchens and watching them roll across the floor!  He did join in for a couple of photos on the front porch after they were done.


Pumpkins from left to right: Maddie’s witch, my owl and Emmalee’s queen!

Every loved the final products, especially the girls when we lit the candles and turned off the lights!  Mason enjoyed the pumpkins until we turned the lights out and then he panicked.

I hope you all have a wonderful, safe and DRY Halloween!

    awwww this is so cute, I will confess now I have never carved a pumpkin before my father always used to do it. And most other times we kinda just cooked it as is and scoop out seeds once ready to eat

    The queen is amazing. We use a drill with a beater attached to the end to remove all of the guts from the side of the pumpkin and then they all just fall out. No dirty hands!

    OK I’m loving the name although I just say “scoop out the insides”. My boys would love that name better.

    Your pumpkins look great! I didn’t have a chance to carve any this year which makes me a bit sad :(

    Great pumpkins. My sister said my niece did not want to scoop out the insides of the pumpkins.

    I miss carving jack-o-lanterns…my darling hubby has gotten into carving those really complex scene ones, so he does them on the plastic pumpkins because there’s no point putting in all that work on something that’s going to rot. Yeah, sure, all well and good, but it means no home-roasted pumpkin seeds for me!

    This is half the reason I haven’t got the guts up to make a pumpkin pie by myself yet – the couple of times I have, I had my mom helping me out with the whole pumpkin-emptying thing! It’s so much work and it smells so horrible. /o\

    Sounds like a lot of fun! I love the name pumpkin poop! haha! We were going to carve pumpkins this year but opted out. I like the look of un-carved pumpkins almost as much as carved. Thanks for sharing :)
