But I have 3 of his friends living in my house :)
We went to the pumpkin patch and picked out our pumpkins the day before Halloween. Ya a little late, and because of the cold wet weather they were a tad rotten but we found the ones we want. It was a yucky wet day so no, no photos. :) There was a truck stuck in the mud for ages LOL he got out eventually. Good thing cause I am no help. :)
So we bring home these poor pumpkins to sacrifice for the yearly Jacks. Each kid gets to pick her own and make it hers by customizing a nice face :)
After cleaning the outsides we get to cut a top out and Gut the poor Jacks.
Then is the important task of drawing faces on the pumpkin. The little ones dictate the placement of features, and we draw. Taylor does her own as long as she doesnt get carried away with Hearts for eyes and pumpkin shaped noses, etc.
Once the Jacks are carved up and lit, they get displayed in their glory. I heard the supposed origin of the Jack-O-Lantern today, something about Jack being forced to carry his Hell-Fire around in a hollowed out gourd for all eternity...interesting ! I love thinking of Jacks full of Hell Fire HEHEHEHHE
