Jack O' Lanterns

Last weekend we got a bunch of pumpkins at our local nursery, and then we carved two of them. They're molding now but here's when they were first carved. I did the dog face one and I was thrilled with how it turned out. I just looked at a picture online and decided I could do it, then drew it freehand and carved it. Amazing what you can do when you have a little confidence. I haven't carved pumpkins in years but made a point of it this year because I knew my daughter would enjoy it, and it was really fun.

How cool. We spent many years carving pumpkins and the neighborhood kids loved seeing them on the porch every year. It's very gratifying! And kids love it, even though sometimes you have to help them a lot. We haven't done it for a couple of years but it's definitely FUN!
