Pumpkin carving

When it was time to gather pumpkins from the garden, it turned out that we only had one or two worth doing. Then it turned out that they "had slugs" on them, and some people would not touch them. You know, they really are not very expensive....BUT on the Sunday before Halloween, the pickings are slim. So we got huge ones!!!Kristina invited us and Geni over for an afternoon/evening of carving pumpkins and eating Ancho-pumpkin-black bean soup. Yum!! She also made a ginger cheesecake which was really good, too. So we slimed up her kitchen, taking all the guts out.....
Roy helped Asher with his....
When Miles was little, he would not come within about five feet of pumpkin innards....he's so grown up, now....sniff.
Fearless, as always.
The Carnage.
Miles's own design. I almost passed out on Halloween when someone asked if we were Astros fans. He thought that was their logo. It does pretty much look like it, but really, it just came out of his head--we are NO fans of Houston anything!
Caroline's cat on a tree branch.
I made this from a book design the kids picked. We saw the same one down the street!!
Hick never got around to carving his, so I did this with a carving knife about 5 minutes after trick or treaters started coming....
Well, we had to have at least one with a face....
