Orange Globes of Fun!

Today I decided I wanted to carve pumpkins, to sort of get in the festive spirit of Halloween. Plus, the only decoration we currently have up are some electrical jack-o-lanterns that just don't quite cut it. So I journeyed to Ralphs, grabbed some poor, unsuspecting pumpkins, and headed home to perform some serious surgery. From there, Matt and I pretty much covered all the counters in the kitchen in pumpkin guts and seeds (while saving most of it to go into the Great Halloween Pumpkin Display, pictures of that to follow at a later date). While we only narrowly avoided cutting ourselves with the rather large kitchen knives we were using, I must say, we did very well.

Good job! They look fantastic.

And that one on the left in the last picture looks particularly scary. hee

Thanks! Yes, I'm pleased.

It'll be more obvious once we have it set up, but the pumpkin with the little pumpkins inside is supposed to be wreaking havoc on the "pumpkin city". The little pumpkin in front is fleeing with her child to get away from the big pumpkin that keeps eating all the children.

Once it's all done, there will be a trail of pumpkin bits and seeds strewn about.

Sinister, yes. Hilarious? Of course :).

I'm so jealous!! We were all supposed to carve pumpkins before our big Halloween plans but fucking Wilma ruined Halloween for us South Florida folks.

Anyway, super cute and I hate you.
