Ok I have to admit I've gotten a little lazy over the years when it comes to the pumpkin carving. We used to carve pumpkins in our family, it was a tradition every Halloween but these days painting the pumpkin seems the way to go. I'll use the excuse that people turn their pumpkins into a work of a art if you really think about it!

Beautiful colors, turquoise, gold, white, polka dots, stripes. Or some ladies bling them out with glitter or crystals. Why not get creative and do the same? Plus, the kiddos have fun making a mess and playing around with paints of all colors. What do you do in your family? Do you carve or are you painters?
