pumpkins!

We carved pumpkins this past weekend. The girls had fun taking the pumpkin guts out, and we enjoyed carving the pumpkins. My fingers were sore, but it's strangely satisfying to carve out a shape and see what it looks like.

We did "cheat" by using those pumpkin carving patterns you can buy at the store, but they do make cool looking pumpkins, so we decided to use them again this year.

My cat's whiskers and tail fell off, but it still looks cat-ish. Hubby did the best job on the cat in the window carving. I like the wolves.

Enjoy!

Those are great! I am all-about the cheating if you come out with something like this.

I always wanted to do the pumpkin that was barfing out its guts!

Your pumpkins look awesome! We don't have one single Halloween thing up this year. I'd better get on it!
