Pumpkin Carving

finished pumpkin

My work was having a pumpkin carving contest... as usual. So my friend and I carved our pumpkins together.  I forget how much work goes into getting a pumpkin cleaned out and carved!!

It takes a bit of elbow grease! Scooping and scraping!  Then all the little pokes, that killed my wrist too!

But we had a fun time, much better than if we were to carve our pumpkins alone.

Here's my pumpkin:

I decided on this little furry creature because he was too cute. He did originally have horns, but instead of carving horns I carved two more little fur patches. I've never been a fan of the devil... when I was growing up we were never those scary things like devils or demons... we always dressed up in fun, happy things like crayons, bears, and rainbow bright!  I remember one year... maybe I should save this story for the costume post... our costume contest is Friday, so stay tuned! :-)

Thanks for reading!
