Today we created a Pumpkin Army! Well, almost. Seven pumpkins later, a lot of mess and very Pumpkin-covered hands, we were finished with our artistic carving and ready for nightfall! The faces were mostly random, but there is a Harry Potter lurking in there somewhere…

Pumpkin Carving is a tradition for many, and especially us. At Halloween we not only carve pumpkins, but also decorate the house somewhat with Halloween bits and pieces. It’s fun! The carving today was a challenge after about pumpkin number three…
