The weather is changing, it’s getting darker sooner and the stores are already starting to fill up with costumes and candy in anticipation for Halloween!
A few years ago I sat down and carved the first pumpkin with my kids. I have never been terribly crafty or good at anything artistic, so a simple ghost face was all I could get done. It was more about the process though — the picking the pumpkin, pulling out the seeds and carving it that was the fun part.
My husband, who is far (far!) more artistic than I am decided to one-up me (not that it was hard) and carved a Thomas the Train pumpkin with the kids. It was amazing and a far cry from anything I saw when I was a kid.
People are getting very creative with their carvings and really showing how seriously they are taking the Halloween traditions. I have come across some incredible pumpkin carvings that make the one I did look like it was done in the dark with one hand.
