Have Knife, will Carve

This past Friday was pumpkin carving day. The neighbors invited us over for supper, wine, and “a go” at the big, round, orange fruit. It was a contest of who can carve better than a 5th grader. With little or no recent experience at this venture, I would say we fared pretty well. Wouldn’t you?

Halloween 011

The mad minion bids you hello!

Halloween 012

A knife and an imagination brings a frightful sight.

Halloween 010

The owl’s eyes glow in the night, ready to kill.

Halloween 013

The evil Cheshire cat welcomes you into his lair.

Halloween 008

The happy pumpkin wishes you a Happy Halloween.

    Mind you, it doesn’t take a lot to impress me when it comes to pumpkin carving … [grin]

        They are all sitting outside, by the front door of the building. Waiting to scare the visitors. πŸ˜‰ Unfortunately, after Halloween, they will find their way to the garbage as they are already deteriorating. 😦

        Gosh, Having their innards gouged out doesn’t seem to agree with ’em, then.
        Wonder why …?

  2. Oh, man, you guys get all the fun. Fourth of July, Halloween, Christmas with snow. Honestly, it’s a miracle we Aussies can maintain our sunny dispositions.

    It’s been a long time since I carved a pumpkin but I know for a fact I never carved one as interesting as these! Nice job! and I love that you all gathered for food, wine, and carving! Good fun!

  4. Oooh! I love the Chessie Cat! We carved our pumpkins the weekend before last. Ours are already looking moldy with the warm weather we’ve had here! Great job!

      The cat ears have shriveled up to something that resembles dried apples and the smell is getting offensive. I didn’t realize they decompose so fast. Next year, we will have to wait until a day or two before Halloween.
