Hannah`s really adventurous so I was sure she`d enjoy digging deep into the pumpkin to pull out all the slimy, gooey pumpkin guts!
Yah….not so much! :o)
While she napped I`d prepped the pumpkin by cutting the top off and scooping the gook off the sides and bottom but leaving it in the pumpkin. (Thankfully in the morning I’d taken a quick look at our pumpkin in the garage as I realized that it rotted and a quick trip back to the pumpkin farm was needed to buy a replacement. Note to self: Next year leave pumpkin outside as the garage isn’t cold enough. Oops!)
When she woke I she was excited to see her pumpkin on the counter and quickly ran to get the little one she`d coloured at daycare last week. I took the top off and asked if she wanted to pull out the guts? She took one peek, and sniff and declared that pumpkin guts are yucky! Heh….so much for Mom’s photo op she’d planned!
She lost interest pretty quick which in reality worked okay as I needed to carve our image. I’m sure Hannah’s choice will come as a surprise to none of you!
(I was blessed to be chosen by Lisa as a winner of one of her great photography classes intended to help people with DSLR cameras get out of the Auto mode. Umm…yah, that was me. I’ve had the camera for 2 1/2 years and still took 95% of my pics in auto. I’ve only had one class and am also trying out a new lens so please ignore some of the fuzzy pics. I love the blurry background but I’m still working on how to keep the subject as crisp and clear as I want it. I’ll get there. Just more practice needed!)
