Minaz was really excited to carve pumpkins, something none of us had ever done before. I must admit that we all tried to get out of it. First we insisted that we had to have our cupcake dessert first. After eating our delicious cupcakes, lovingly made by my cousin Farah, we then protested that it was too cold to carve the pumpkins outside. Thankfully, Minaz didn't give up on the idea. She set us up to carve the pumpkins inside and we had a blast!

Kahzmir watches from afar, still unsure of all these shenanigans...
Suli starts scooping out the inside of her pumpkin.
The challenge ahead of me. I got a bit intense.
I think I broke a sweat at one point while scooping out the inside of my pumpkin.
Kahzmir gets in on the action pulling out some seeds. We roasted the seeds in butter and salt. They were so yummy!
I confused jack o' lantern and snowman but this was a great first attempt and it was FUN! Kahzmir loved finding mitts and a hat for our friend here!
Bringing our creations outside! I love how Kahzmir is hugging Jose. That's what we named him.

Thanks given for a wonderful family, great food, time spent together and trying new things.
