I found a picture of a cannibal pumpkin "eating" another, smaller pumpkin. It was more interesting than an ordinary triangle-eyed, zigzag-mouthed Jack-O-Lantern, challenging, but achievable. I drew the face free-hand with a Sharpie marker and then handed the pumpkin off to Bernie for execution.
|See how much he enjoys carving pumpkins? Who am I to deprive him of this joy?!|
Unfortunately, this little baby pumpkin fell out of the other pumpkin's mouth and smashed on the driveway. I had to go to three different grocery stores before I found a little green squash of the right size to sacrifice to our cannibal pumpkin. Here's what we ended up with the second time around:
Here are the boys' finished pumpkins:

I think I will also rearrange the pumpkins when Bernie isn't looking. I'd rather group all of the pumpkins together on the right side of the steps. There aren't that many of them and they look weak spread out like that. Also, since we use candles, it's safer to keep all of the flaming pumpkins on one side so I can herd the little princesses and caped crusaders up and down the opposite side, away from the pumpkins.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
