Texter Does Halloween

Texter wanted to carve a pumpkin.  So I bought a pumpkin and a little carving kit and brought it home last Friday night.  And in the middle of the kitchen floor (with a generous application of newspaper) she traced and carved for hours.  She created my one and only Halloween decoration – that is if you don’t count me looking like the Wicked Witch after a day of work and school.

This is the first pumpkin she has actually carved all on her own.  Once or twice we did the whole ‘family bonding moment’ and she assisted in carving a basic pumpkin – but this was all hers.

(The pictures are no reflection on the quality – in other words, the pumpkin is awesome, the pictures are crap!)

Actually, she carved 3 different designs on the pumpkin.

And then the lit version.

And then one of the other designs (my favorite).

Like I said, the pictures don’t do it justice.

The girls will both be gone over the Halloween weekend, pursuing their own interests (Huzzah!!! – I mean cough, cough) So it’s just me and the pumpkin.  I plan to turn off the lights and pretend no one is at home.  I’m going as a Bah Humbug for Halloween!

  1. Our halloween was last night for here and Im not sure why because there were no kids out .I hate the fact that they have changed halloween from the 31st to the 27th and that is sad . Halloween should be on the 31st regardless .
