Last weekend, we went to Lombardi Ranch with Janet & Jimmy. Bought lots of corn, peppers and a pumpkin. We waited till wed night to carve it so it will stay fresh on Halloween day since it doesn't last that long. It was fun. I think this is my first ever real pumpkin that i carved. :) I carved one before when i was in MI, but i don't think i really carved it except to look and took credit for the end result. And then i think i carved a really small one few years ago when i was living at jimmy's house. that's about it.... this is my real big pumpkin. yes... MINE... and john.
ppl said you lose your identity after you got married. everything is "we", "us" or "ours". so that's OUR big pumpkin on a poly paper bag. we couldn't find any newspaper around... come'on... who still reads the paper when you can get the latest and fastest news frm the internet right?
and then you cut the top off....
and pull the guts out.... ewww....
i got this pumpkin carving kit from target, complete with templates and carving utensils
it seems easy so i picked this little witch
carefully make dotted lines on the pumpkin. haha i looked like ah ma...it looked like this after all the dotted lines were done. we couldn't find tape, so we use one of those stupid black tape for electrical wiringjohn then carefully colored the part where we were supposed to cut out
john then rinsed off the black marker

I told my co-worker about my pumpkin and they said of course it's fun for me. John did the dirty work- taking the guts out... haha... we will carve one again next year.... till then.
