The Second Annual Pumpkin Carving...



If our last computer hadn't passed on to that great motherboard in the sky, I'd let you see last years' pumpkins, but alas--to everything there is a time and a season...

I carved the werewolf, Rich decided he wanted something a little more spooky, so we went with Icabod Crane as his inspiration (courtesy of some very lovely pumpkin-template web sites).

Happy Halloween everyone!

Very Cool...want to come to MO and do ours...we have 6....I'm not sure how the kiddos will turn out!

LOL! I dunno if I'm up for 6 pumpkins! There are tons of cool templates online, though, most of them simple enough for kids to do--you should try a couple!

I also saw int he grocery store these Mr. Potato-esque things you can get for pumpkins for smaller children. Just poke some random holes in a pumpkin, and insert scary mouths, eyes, and noses as you please!

Have fun with the mess, however. I'm still finding small pumpkin seeds around the living room... :)

Thanks for the tips...I have a 24 pound pumpkin to carve with my class too...I think I went a little bit over board this year...we are definitely going to carve in the kitchen with lots of newspapers!

hey, nice pumpkins. I saw a crap load of pumpkins here in Massachusetts...
They're like the millions that came here in a bus... they're everywhere! Oh and they flavor everything with pumpkin too... (pumpkin cappacinno, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin cookies) lol
Anyway, love ya!
