Smiling Jack

Nothing says 'fall' quite like Halloween. And nothing says 'Halloween' quite like pumpkin carving! Wonder Boy selected a great grinning stencil to be our starting point and we chose a pumpkin with a fairly head-like shape on which to make our master piece this year.

We were really impressed with the Boy's carving skills - they have greatly improved since last fall. He likely won't need our help at all next year (though he doesn't like to be the one to empty out the seeds and such so I guess we still get to participate).

We call our new pumpkin friend "Smiling Jack" and we hope the heat won't have him decomposed before Halloween actually arrives. Now .... to dig out the rest of the decorations and get them up as well!
