I always have carved pumpkins for Halloween. I don’t remember when I started, but I remember each year, we would go out an pick out a pumpkin for each of us kids. Then, when my brothers were too old/and or had moved out of the house, Dad and I would go and pick out a couple for me to do. When I moved out on my own, I continued the tradition, only missing the year that I was trapped…er, living in the dorm (but I did decorate the door for Halloween — it was a way cool sarcophagus made from tag board that actually opened to reveal a mummy inside).

Andrew and I went out a couple weeks ago to Cox Farms, just up the road, and picked out two pun’kins for me to carve. Here’s the results of my handiwork (thanks in part to Pumpkin Masters):

(They’re fuzzy because I took them without a flash, and my hand jiggled a bit when I took them.)

I dressed up in costume, as a vampiress:

But, I put the costume on before dinner, complete with fake nails, so I had a bit of trouble eating the wonderful pizza Andrew made.

I estimated that we had just about 70 kids this year, which is about the same as last year. The cutest costume was a little kid, about 4, who was in a full-body lion costume. There were a couple Hulks, many witches, a couple fairy princesses, a football player (I think he was just wearing his uniform from school, though), a ninja, a clown, and so many more that I just can’t remember.

A very fun night!
