We had our annual pumpkin carving session yesterday...with rather the largest two pumpkins we have EVER carved!
Oldest is carving the second of the two big pumpkins that he grew in the garden (we ate the first one!) and youngest picked out his at the grocery store the other day....a really BIG pumpkin!
To succeed you need a lot of concentration...
And a very steady hand....
The thing that didn't get captured in the photos is the cats. Our cats wandered around and through all of this, very curious as to why and what we were doing (well, the young cats were curious. The old one just came up and did what she did every year: eat pumpkin innards right out of the bowl! I don't know if that's her very own peculiarity or what, but it seems pretty strange!)
For those out trick or treating in our neighbourhood...You are not seeing double - and - fear the reaper. Yes, fear the reaper.
