Oh the kids carve their own pumpkins too, we usually have about 6 or 7 pumpkins. And this year, I am using old tabacco (plastic) cans and sanding them and painting pumpkin faces on them, Andrew has been helping me paint them. And we will put them all over the yard on Halloween night with a candle in each one.
