Carvin' Time!

Visit to pumpkin patch: check.

Cooler weather: check.

Week of Halloween: check.

It's carvin' time!

I love having pumpkins sitting around in artsy little piles around my house. Don't get me wrong, though- those pumpkins are destined for more than decor. Pies. Jack-O-Lanterns. Chicken feed. You get the idea. This past weekend it was time for a few of them to realize their destiny.

Last year I discovered the merit of incorporating power tools into our carving process. This year I started with the RotoZip. Oh yes, it will forevermore be a pumpkin carving thing for us. Love.

From left to right: Audrey's, Gramps's, and Henry's (who didn't want to give up his marker and thus waaaaay over-designed his pumpkin).

Halloween was never my fav holiday... it might have ranked around 4th or 5th for most of my youth really... but these days it's working it's way up. I think having kids has had something to do with it's promotion........
