Carving Pumpkins and Stuffing Scarecrows

Last year we started a new halloween/autumn tradition. While at Heiser Farms we picked up some haybales and the corn stalks. Then, a day or two later we sat out on our front step and stuffed our friendly scarecrow. Everyone pitched in and Jacob watched from his play area. Here we have the crew hanging on the front step surrounded by our fall festivities.

Pumpkin carving time! One of our favorite activities. Everyone loves to take the ‘guts’ out of the punpkins and for Jacob it was a new and interesting experience. You can tell by the grin on his face, he thought it was lots of fun. 🙂


I love how the seeds and goop are just dripping out of Emily’s hands all the way down to the pumpkin.


Here is everyone, digging and scraping away.


I know it’s mean of me not to post photos of the finished products, I didn’t do it on purpose, they are just in my camera still with the rest of the halloween photos. They will be coming soon (after Thanksgiving some time).

  1. Your fall decorations (scarecrows, hay, etc) look great! We’ve stuffed scarecrows before and it’s so much fun! And what’s more fun for a kid than to play with squishy goopy pumpkin guts! 🙂
