Pumpkin Carving

Last night Jeremy and I finally carved our pumpkins with our friend, Ashley.
His is on the left, mine is on the right.

Ashley carved a unicorn with a lady leg wearing a boot.

You can’t see it in the dark – but my pumpkin is throwing up out of the right side of his mouth (you may have to click on the photo if it’s cropped off, like it is in my web browser). Jeremy’s pumpkin is horrified.

For some reason when I was a kid carving pumpkins seemed SO hard. Cleaning out the pumpkin was just impossible. Carving through the pumpkin was even harder – I didn’t have much upper body strength as an 8 year old paired with a very dull steak knife. Now as an adult I can fully appreciate my blossomed biceps and the handy pumpkin carving tool sets (with little miniature saws that tear right through the pumpkin skin) available at wal-mart resulting in a perfectly carved puking pumpkin.
