Pumpkin Night 2017 . . .

It’s one of our favorite family traditions, every year since Ryan was little.  In late October, we plan a night to carve pumpkins.  Ryan and I were always “freehanders”, but when Emily joined the mix, she introduced us (mostly me) to stencils.  And we got more creative . . .


As usual, our supervisor was on duty . . .

Emily likes really BIG stems on her pumpkins, and was so excited about carving them this year that we got two for her.

This is probably the biggest challenge that I have ever attempted, and I came up with the idea in the few minutes before Ryan and Emily arrived.  This is the athletic mascot from the local high school (yes, stolen from Michigan State years ago – I always preferred the old one, but it would have been impossible to carve into a pumpkin).

And then we took them outside and displayed them on the front porch . . .

And one for my Facebook page.  Hope you and your little beggars have great weather, and a safe and Happy Halloween.
