Transforming pumpkins to jack-o-lanterns is another adventure.
First step: Cut the top off and "gut" the pumpkin.
Dramatic response necessary!
Second step: Create a face/design and begin carving.
The options are endless, and personalities are oft identified in the carving.
Third step: Finally, we light a candle and let the jack-o-lanterns glow into the night!
On Halloween night, over a dozen carved jack-o-lanterns lined our sidewalk. The sight elicited many comments, and the little trick-or-treaters peered at each one carefully as they walked by.
The best comment of the evening, "All these jack-o-lanterns are great~this is the Picasso of pumpkins."
Disclaimer: Once again I did not manage to capture all the pumpkins and participants, but merely the essence amidst the chaos.
