Thayer's ghost pumpkin. Carving a pumpkin just really isn't entertaining more than a couple of times each season and take little involvement on the part of a three-year-old. In an attempt to mix it up, Thayer and I decorated a pumpkin in a less conventional way. First we painted it white from stem to bottom, then we collected leaves on a walk and modge podged those on. Thayer had a blast and he could actually be involved in the entire proces.
