Carving Punkin's

On the Friday night before Halloween, our family spent the evening carving pumpkins. I had bought a book of templates to carve something interesting on the pumpkins this year instead of the standard triangle eyes/nose pumpkin face. Matthew picked a skeleton face and Grant picked a "Home Alone" face (if you don't know what I'm talking about... you'll see). We cut the tops off, cleaned the "guts" out and started carving. I kept the "guts" and actually toasted the pumpkin seeds for a treat. I remember my Mamaw in NY doing that once and I've always done it since.

Hope each of you had a great Halloween!!

Grant's pumpkin is on the left beside him... Matthew's is on the right beside him. Too bad they came out a bit blurry. Oh, well.
