With very cautious hands and a pocket knife I carved my first ever pumpkin. My parents say I carved one when I was around three, but I don't remember doing so. There is a lot of work that goes into pumpkin carving, but it's super fun...and you can use the seeds and make a delicious snack for yourself while carving.
I love pumpkin patches. They have such a fun atmosphere with all the pumpkins to choose from and gourds and everyone trying to choose their favorite pumpkin. Give me a cup of coffee, cool weather, and nothing to do for an afternoon and I'm completely content.
There he is, little Gerald. I hope you can tell he's an owl. It was so much fun carving pumpkins and seeing what everyone else came up with. At the end of the night we had an owl, a pirate, iron man, and two scary pumpkin faces. So much fun! Now I'm off to decorate for the Halloween party tonight! What's your favorite pumpkin carving you've ever done?
