290. Carve a Pumpkin

IMG_8261 (640x480)Pumpkin carving is very much a northern hemisphere kind of thing, probably because our southern pumpkins are green so it just doesn’t quite work… So carving an orange pumpkin was quite the novelty for me, and yet another first.

With the 10 year old of the house unleashing her creativity with a permanent market, my job was to do the actual carving. I was quite surprised at her pumpkin designs in the end – quite elaborate! Especially the one with the plastic gun shooting out its pumpkin brains.IMG_8263 (640x480) IMG_8384 (640x480) IMG_8259 (640x480) IMG_8256 (640x480) IMG_8258 (480x640) IMG_8257 (480x640)
