Be Careful Who You Go Home With

Nathan came home from school today proudly carrying his adorable little pie pumpkin. He picked it out for himself at Port Farms which is where the Pre-K and Kindergarten classes went for their field trip.
Aw.... Isn't that a cute li'l pumpkin?
So little.
So round.
So orange.
Well. This isn't the actual pumpkin Nathan brought home.
I'm not releasing the real pumpkin's identity until the family has been notified.
Little did the pumpkin know it was entering .... the HOUSE OF HORRORS.
First, Nathan cut it open with a butter knife. (So it would hurt more)
Then he pestered me to make it into a pie. (More like he wanted me to dispose of the evidence)
He helped me scrape the guts out, then put the poor little pumpkin parts in a pan of water and bake it down in the oven at 350 degrees to mush before the skin itself was removed!

This is all that's left of the cute li'l pie pumpkin.
For now.

Between bodies in graveyards and pumpkin-nappings, I'm thinking your kids would do well with a bit more tv watching. ;)

Um, will we get some more pictures of the lil punkin's fate? I'm horrified, of course, but yet also strangely intrigued...

Poor little thing!!
But some pumpkin pie does sound delicious so I don't blame you. :)

A Halloween of Horrors! And Pumpkin Snatching! You do know the FBI can identify pumpkin goop to the patch, don't you?

Sounds like you had a great time, though!LOL
