Yesterday our family had our annual pumpkin carving day, and it was a blast as always! We carved eight pumpkins this year, and it took us about six hours of working off-and-on, taking turns as one parent kept Simon entertained, and the other carved and prepared pumpkins with Sawyer and Sutton.
Pumpkin Gutter tool, and it saved a ton of time this year. We still had to scrape the bottom by hand since it didn't work very well at that angle, but it removed the seeds and strings and thinned the walls at the same time - all in about one minute flat. As a general rule, any time you can mix power tools and pumpkins it's going to be a hit in our house!
