|This year's selection of pumpkins are ready to be gutted.|
|Our Halloween display in all its glory!|
We didn't need the kids, we had fun anyway. Hubby was on vacation the week of Halloween so he was able to get all the pumpkins gutted the day before and they had a chance to warm up before carving time. I hate working on them if they have just come in from outside. Brrrrr! We carved five pumpkins this year. I did my traditional "Miss Kitty" and he did an owl, a spider face, a toothy guy and the moons and stars. They took a long time but it was worth the effort. Miss Kitty was the most talked about again this year. Poor Hubby, some day he will carve a pumpkin the kiddies like.
|The pumpkin seeds were nice and plump. They made great Devil Seeds!|
|The "October" woodcraft got finished the day before Halloween.|
We've been busy in the craft room again lately. Hubby made this cute October sign from a design we found on the net. It turned out pretty nicely but it was almost November before it got finished. I'll give it another week or so until I pack it away for next year.
I'll leave you with a few more pictures of this year's crew. Bye for now.
|Almost ready to go outside for their début.|

|Okay, now let's have some kiddies!|
|Thanks, fellas. You did a great job!|
|Glowing together for the last time.|
|In the sunshine the next day.|
