We like Halloween around our house. I live with a family of sweet tooth's, so what's not to like. The kids and the wife enjoy the dressing up and the CANDY! Me, I like Halloween for another reason. I like to carve the pumpkins! I bought a carving kit the Halloween before I got married and surprised my new bride with a dragon fly pumpkin that included her name. I was hooked from that point. Above is the pumpkin I carved for myself last Halloween. I wonder where I got the inspiration?
This is the pumpkin that the wife carved last year. This one was really cool because the pumpkin was solid white. It turned out very pretty. I was proud of her! It was her first attempt at pumpkin carving, but she is very artistic so I agreed to let her give it a shot!
This is what the kids asked for this year. I carved them tonight because they didn't want to wait until this weekend. They are mini pumpkins, so I really did not have a lot of space to work with. Reid wanted a bat and Mia wanted a girl pumpkin. Notice the hair bow on the left side of the face.
I have two big pumpkins left to go. I will spend tomorrow thinking about what design I want to do this year and see what kind of patterns I can find. The carving will take place on Saturday. I think I may go with a Braves theme this year! I'll post pictures when I get them finished for your viewing pleasure!
