We picked up a few pumpkins a couple weeks ago for an arrangement for the front porch, but we went back to West End Plants and Produce to pick up some more for carving - 2 big ones and 2 small ones. Yesterday we got to work on our pumpkins :)
Here's my K:
One year at my townhouse in Fredericksburg, I wasn't going to be home on Halloween and didn't want to get egged for not giving out candy, so I drilled holes in a pumpkin and stuff Tootsie Roll pops in the holes. I added a sign that said "Please Take One" (I'm sure the kids ignored the signs)...so I decided to do that again, only without the lollipops. I thought it would look really cool lit up at night!
Dave carved this evil guy, which we filled with orange twinkle lights:
He also made a vampire and another small carved pumpkin - see what I mean about the creativity? It's unreal!
Here's the whole pumpkin family:
And all lit up on the
My drilly pumpkin needs bigger holes I guess - you can barely see the light through it!
I think we have a new family tradition! So fun!
