Charlie Brown may have the Great Pumpkin, but we have "The Magic Pumpkin"

It is tradition in our home every fall to carve pumpkins for Family Night. And every year we have lucked out and had at least one "Magic pumpkin" in the lot...

Now, you are probably wondering why your pumpkins have never been lucky... well, are you shaking them, maybe you should.

So the idea with the magic pumpkin is that some of the pumpkins we carve each year have candy in them and sometimes even money. Our kids are never afraid to get their hands dirty during carving time because they are bound to find a treat among the goo. And those of you who don't like pumpkin gut covered candy, well you might not enjoy our tradition as much as our kids do.... aren't those M&Ms tempting you???


These are great memories for our family and we even had one Magic Pumpkin from our own garden this year. That is what we get for dropping candy right next to the seeds.......

Anticipation....

Dig in.....

Yummy M&Ms

A magic Pumpkin....How lucky you are.
We have had several in our days, but on our mission we have to stay away form wizarding and pumpkining so we haven't had one for two years.
We are jealous! but thrill with your fortune in Bagdad.
Our Halloween was spent in the Temple, a good tradition, at least for this year.

Thanks for keeping the Traditions alive.

Haha! Your posts always crack me up. That is a cute little tradition though! And I just have to point out again how I love that in the last picture Will's pants are missing again... :)
