To carve or not to carve?

One of my favorite things to decorate our yard with in the fall is pumpkins. I love how they look sitting with my mums on an old chair and on the front porch steps. I love how pumpkins look at night when they are carved and lit up with candles even more however.

Hubby and I have carved pumpkins each year together since we started dating. I have also had a picture taken each year of us with our pumpkins and I keep them in a special scrapbook. It is fun to look back at the different designs we have done each year. We enjoy doing simple to complex ones or spelling words or our name as well. We usually do about 5 each year.

This year was only the second or third year we have actually had pumpkins stolen from our house. It was a first however for one to be stolen before we carved it! I just don't understand why people do that type of stuff!

Now we were left with only 3 this year and carved them tonight. I am excited to post our picture on Halloween with B in his costume next to our "works of art". This year, B drew the triangles on for the eyes and nose of his pumpkin and I cut them out. It is so cute!

Stop over to Mama's Losin' It, 7 Clown Circus, Mayhem and Moxie, and Better in Bulk for more Halloween fun!


  1. Can you believe that I have never carved a pumpkin? Makes me want to try. ;)

  2. They stole your uncarved pumpkin?! That stinks! Hope you have fun carving! :-) I think we'll do the same tonight.

  3. People have no soul. I can't believe that someone would be so bold as to steal right off of your front porch.

    That is very bad Halloween Ju-Ju. :)

  4. How awful!! And I am ashamed to admit that I have never carved a pumpkin. I may just give it a try this year.


So, what do ya' think?
