After coming back home from their fun trip to the pumpkin patch, Kit and Abbey helped each other carry their heavy pumpkins into the kitchen and set them on the newspaper covered table.
They were so excited to begin! Kit ran to go get the carving knifes and supplies.
"Okay, we're ready!" Kit told Abbey excitedly giving her a carving knife. "We first need to cut the tops off of our pumpkins."
Abbey very carefully cut through the top of her pumpkin, tracing a jagged circle around it.
Once she was finished cutting all around the top of hers, Kit pulled off the lid of her pumpkin. Now, it was time to dig in and get all of the pumpkin goop out...yuck!
"Ewwww, it's so wet and slimy!!" both of the girls said, while giggling.
"Getting pumpkin goop out sure is gross," Abbey told Kit, "But, for some reason it's the most fun part!"
Kit and Abbey tried to get out as much pumpkin goop as they could, and held out their yucky hands a few inches away. "Let's go wash up and clean our hands!" Kit suggested, and Abbey quickly followed.
After they had cleaned up and put aside the pumpkin goop, they were ready to draw on their pumpkin design! Abbey and Kit had talked earlier and agreed that they wouldn't show each other their pumpkins until after they were all done. Surprises are always more fun!
Abbey decided on a nice "springy" design to carve, she missed the nice and sunny weather already.
When they finished drawing their design pattern, Kit and Abbey patiently cut and punched out all of the small pieces. Finally...
...they were done!! "Ta-da!" Kit exclaimed, "Oh, I just love your flower, Abbey, it's so cute!"
"Thanks, I love yours too! That bow really gives your pumpkin the finishing touch!" Abbey replied sweetly, "Hey...how about we turn out the lights and light them up!"Kit thought that was a great idea and after putting in the candles, flipped off the light switch.
The pumpkins glowed brightly, shining their happy smiles.
Kit and Abbey's smiles matched their pumpkins too! They had picked out the two best pumpkins, did a great job carving them, and most of all-had a fun time together!
Did you and your doll carve a pumpkin this year? :)
Red and brown leaves crunched under their feet, as Kit and Abbey walked into the Pumpkin Patch. They were going to carve pumpkins together, and were on a search to find two perfect pumpkins-one for each of them!
"Wow, look at them all!" Kit exclaimed to Abbey. "How are we going to choose?"
"Let's get looking!" Abbey said while scanning all of the bright orange pumpkins.
Kit went to the left side of the patch, trying not to trip on the pumpkin vines. There were so many different kinds of pumpkins, of all shapes and colors. Now to only choose one! Kit's eyes went to two nice looking pumpkins.
"Did you find a pumpkin yet?" Kit asked as Abbey walked past her.
"No, not yet, I can't seem to decide!" Abbey said with a sigh.
"I'm sure you'll find a good one! Which of these pumpkins do you think I should get?" Kit asked pointing to the two in her lap.
"Hmm...definitely the round one." Abbey smiled, and Kit thought so too.
Abbey left Kit with her pumpkin, and headed farther down the field of pumpkins. Suddenly, she saw one pumpkin all by itself...
...and it was HUGE! "This one is just perfect!" Abbey said to herself.
She sat down to get a closer look and started to lift the pumpkin so she could carry it to Kit...but it was too heavy!
"You found one, but oh my goodness, that pumpkin is big!" Kit said as she ran towards Abbey.
"Yeah...I think I need a little help." Abbey said with a laugh.
With some help from Kit, they were both able to load up their pumpkins to leave. They couldn't wait to start carving! The girls wondered about what design they would carve all the way home...
Ps~Stay tuned for Part 2...when Kit and Abbey carve their pumpkins!
