Pumpkin carving!

One of the things that I absolutely love about Halloween is being able to carve pumpkins!
I get so excited about going and choosing pumpkins and sitting down with family to carve one it really releases my inner child. 

This year me and my boyfriend carved pumpkins together and it was allot of fun even though I am rubbish at it and my pumpkin turned out terrible haha, but it's not about having the most attractive pumpkin its the taking part that counts

This was our set up the first step of any good pumpkin carving session is to first get your cutting utensils and a bowl or bin to put all the pumpkin guts in.

As soon is I cut into the Pumpkin it releases that strong smell that immediately reminds me of my childhood! The hardest part is trying to get all the guts out

And this is what out Pumpkins turned out like I decided to just go for a pretty traditional Pumpkin face and so did my boyfriend, this was the first time he had carved a Pumpkin so I was hoping that I was going to do a better job seen as I had about 20 years of experience. But no. His turned out much better than mine. Mine is the one on the right, it looks like a bit of a disaster but that is the best I could do. And my boyfriends is the one on the left which looks adorable.

They always look so much cooler once you have put the light inside, it improved the look of mine a little bit my boyfriend's is still a million times better haha!

I had so much fun carving Pumpkins, it is something I love to do every year!
I hope you all had a great Halloween, let me know if you carved a Pumpkin and what you carved on it! I would love to know if you do something creative or if you are not that great at carving Pumpkins like me and just stick to basic traditional faces!

I love you all and I hope you have an amazing day ♥
