Pumpkin Carving 2007

We decided to finally carve our pumpkins this weekend after 4 long days of rain, and crazy days of heat before that. It's supposed to be nice and cool this week so we think they will survive on the porch - now we just have to hope the hooligans don't kick them in!

We picked out three pumpkins this year, one for each of us, and I wanted to try my hand at one in the likeness of Nico. It ended up needing some straight pins to hold it together, but for my first try it turned out pretty well. I think I'll do it again next year just on a bigger pumpkin.

The beginning...

Pete got all of the goop out of of the big ones.

Finally finished...

The finished product, our family of pumpkins!
