Carving Our 2017 Saint-O-Lanterns

This year, following a field trip to the working farm and pumpkin patch, we ended up with lots of tiny pumpkins to carve. The kids went back to the farm last Sunday afternoon to go through their giant corn maze and brought back one more, much larger, pumpkin to carve too. They were all completely on their own this year, but the teens helped their younger siblings and they all did such a great job!


Inspired by the image on Chiquita's Miracle of the Sun T-Shirt, our 15 year old carved the large pumpkin with an image of Our Lady of Fatima, Sister Lucia, and Saints Francisco and Jacinta to commemorate this year's 100th Anniversary of the Apparitions.

  1. I am so inspired and impressed seeing the lovely faith filled designs and the intricate carving your kids have accomplished. But more than anything, I just feel such HOPE for the future when I see their purity and devotion. You are doing an amazing job, Jessica!
