It is a tradition in our house. Cleaning, scrubbing, Papa carves, and they get stripped down for naked pumpkin painting. There's a little bit of eating & wearing paint too:).
The kids love, love, love this. We've done it 2 years now & it's FREE & so much fun! They all wanted to go again! Morgan & Sam cried when we left & Noah talked about the Halloween train for days:). And the pictures taken at the end of that night...hilarious & PRICELESS:).
