I spent a little time with the kids doing google image searches before we started, for inspiration. A couple of friends came over while we carved, which worked out great because both Mister and Dear needed quite a bit of help.
Well, maybe Dear didn't need help, but she sure wanted a lot of it anyway.
Mister wouldn't have needed help, if I'd been more discerning when I let him pick out a pattern. His pumpkin is the pixelated Wreck it Ralph- Chris ended up doing most of the carving.
I decided I really liked the pumpkins with stems for noses, which I soon discovered you totally can't see once you put them out in the dark and put a candle inside. I turned on the light and snapped a picture, because I like it.
Man I love this holiday- there are so many fun things to do for kids and adults alike. Tomorrow is too-much-candy day! Happy Halloween everybody!
