I'm sure you're sick of Halloween already, but I have one last post on the subject for you!
We have a history here of having fun with the carving of our pumpkins each year. I had hoped to share some more Halloween pumpkins' past, but after reloading drivers today, we've discovered our scanner has gone kerplunk, kaphooey, kaput! And all the rest of our previous carved pumpkins are on film & print (aka not digital), so that will have to wait some more until I can make them one with the digital era. :>
And this year, we had some firsts!
This happy little pumpkin is wee girl's and she gutted her pumpkin & half of mine for the first time this year (which made her Dad really happy since he usually does the majority of the pumpkin gutting each year).
And a few days before we had even gone to the pumpkin patch to carefully select each of our pumpkins, she had drawn & colored the pumpkin face that she wanted on her magical little pumpkin. She brought her design to her Dad & he carved it for her. Can I tell you she was so proud & excited to see her sweet happy pumpkin face design come to life when it was carved out?!
Now this Jack-O-Lantern is my boy's. As I was prepping my pumpkin, he was carving his (another first....his first solo carving!) and said, "I'm carving an old fashioned pumpkin....like from 1980. That's a long time ago!" Oh my.
Hubby prefers 'scary' pumpkins & carved this face.....the slug crawling up the face likes it! lol Hubs & I both like pumpkins with cool stems. I forgot to get a lighter shot of mine, but I loved my stem...all curly with dried curly cues hanging from it. Speaking of my pumpkin.....
Fun carving again, this year, I had! (There's my feeble attempt at Yoda-ease!) My hand hurt when I was done, but I was happy with the results. What do you think??
Hope you are having a fantastic weekend! What's happening in your part of the world?
