Jordan carved Booger, our cat, in absolute perfection! Savannah really wanted to create some anime character, which I painsakingly carved for her. I also did the 'nightmare before Christmas' character. Emma did the scary face pumpkin in the top right hand corner.
But it's Steve's pumpkin that really made me laugh. He came home late from work and truly did not feel like man-handling a pumpkin. I heard him rustling about in the garage and next thing I know he's walking into the kitchen with power tools! Yes! Power tools. BRILLIANT. WHY, oh WHY haven't we been using these all those years?
His one and only pumpkin carving was the 'alien' with 6 holes. Compliments of the drill. I caught on and quickly created my character (top left) look with the drill and the jigsaw.
Other than the power tools, my next huge pumpkin carving revelation is to cut the pumpkin at the bottom instead of the top!
Now if we can just figure out an easy, less messy way to de-gut them, I'd carve a dozen every year! Any ideas?
