pumpkin time!

This year we went to a local Methodist church and picked out a pumpkin. Normally we go for a squat, short pumpkin, but this year we went for a tall pumpkin. It was very heavy! Very.

The deal was that I was cleaned out the inside and Charlie would design and carve the pumpkin. I did it last year, while Charlie played video games.

The pumpkin really was heavy and Charlie thought it would be lighter when the guts were cleaned out. It wasn't.

Phil and Bethany had a really nice pumpkin too! They carved two really big eyes into their pumpkin.

Charlie carved a smiley vampire pumpkin. It turned out really cute. The candle kept blowing out because the mouth is so big, so we're going to get a battery powered light for it so we can put it on the porch.

A fine time was had by all!

How fun! I love your big smiley vampire pumpkin. I was dreading pumpkin carving this year and hoping for a way out. Well, my wish was granted. We were supposed to carve it this evening, but Caroline was invited to a Halloween party with our neighbors and then she's sleeping over at their house. Score!

I love days like this. We're about to carve our pumpkins too. I hope they turn out as good as yours did. Is Charlie available for hire? LOL

It looks like you had such a good time and the finished product is great!
