Halloween Pumpkins

The annual ritual of pumpkin carving is getting a little more fun these days as Grace gets old enough to do more than just stay for the first two minutes and then walk away, leaving all the work for me. Amp had seen a picture of a neat idea for a pumpkin, and we tried to replicate it. It looked ok, but the pumpkins weren't quite the right size to get the effect we were looking for. Next year, I think we will try this again, having learned what to do and what not to do this year. The girls really liked the idea of the pumpkin skull coming out of the pumpkin head, we just need to get the right size and shape of orange pumpkin for the outside. The other pumpkin is Grace and Mom's traditional pumpkin.

We certainly aren't pros at this by a long shot, but it is a messy good time.
