Cameron has been learning about pumpkins all week at school. On Friday he went with his class on their first field trip to Maris Farms--Cameron had a blast! One of the first things he learned was not to carry or pick-up a pumpkin by it's stem. Well...today after church I told him we would carve the pumpkin...he got out a spoon to scrape the inside, he helped me lay out a brown sack for the mess and I grabbed the knife. After I cut out around the stem I went to pull it off, of course by the stem and it snapped off, "I told you don't hold it by the stem...now look at what you did." I had to think quick...Grandma came into the kitchen and said Cameron why don't you paint a face and then I had the brilliant idea to use the stem as the nose!!! Cameron had a great time painting and look at his masterpiece...the nose is pretty cool too!!!!!
