Just the right size for my boys. I carved them today. It was so easy. If you lack pumpkins in your area, use these spherical squash (whatever their real name might be). My kids are loving them. We did our nighttime routine to the light of two mini Jack-O-Lanterns. They took turns blowing out the candles forever. I think my lighter is almost empty from relighting so many times.
On a different note, I just have to say how much I love my Shermy. Today, I waited in a crowded room of parents for my children to emerge from the changing room where they change from their clean shoes to their outside shoes to go home in. Shermy came out first and as he came up to me to hug me, he said,"Mommy, when I go home you need to clean my underwear because it's rewy diwty" Even though he drives me out of my mind with the light switches around the apartment I still can't help ruffling his hair, spanking his bottom, or hugging him so close that I can smell his bad breath (that's stinky and sweet at the same time). He has such a vibrant personality that has slowly been emerging over these last few years. He is literally the most popular kid in his preschool for his silliness. I love my cubicle baby. ( That was his nickname when he was born.)
