Pumpkins!



Brad & I carved pumpkins last night After Camden went to bed. I spent a long time surfing the web looking for the perfect pattern. I finally found it when I stumbled on a picture of one of the monsters from Where the Wild Things Are. So I printed it out and sat down to trace & carve. It took me half an hour just to transfer the pattern. Then it took me almost 2 hours to carve my pumpkin. It was a lot of hard work, but I think it turned out fantastic! I got the pattern from Pumpkin Glow.
Brad picked out a pattern from a book, but instead of copying it, he decided to free-hand it. Brad is a very good artist, but I think something got lost in the translation. This is after he did some extra carving because at first his pumpkin looked like it had 3 eyes. If you squint really hard, you might can see a face. Or not.
