Family tradition #501
We have a million family traditions, and my goal is to blog every one of them for future reference, or maybe a book deal? Wishful thinking, but someday I hope to look back and remember all the silly things we did, and actually know why we did them. Ok, sometimes I don't know why, but we will look back and laugh.
This family tradition is called pumpkin scarring. During the 3rd week of August (Fair week for us) we take a knife to our pumpkin patch and write our names in the pumpkins. As the pumpkins grow, they leave a scar with the names. The first picture with Nate, you can't see his name on the pumpkin, but Lily's you can see better. I lucked out with the kids, their names are easy to scar. Any names with round letters are hard to do. The O in Holly always looks like a square.
I don't remember when this tradition started, or why, so Mom can you leave a comment on this post for me? Thanks!
