The Great Pumpkin

It's that time of year again. Monday night we braved the Family Home Evening crowds at the local pumpkin patch, then headed over to my sister's house for some carving action.

After Eddie "carved" Jack Skellington last year, Zero seemed like the next logical step. He recently watched The Nightmare Before Christmas for the first time and was on top of his game, pointing out the ghost pup in every scene.

I chose to do the Yankee logo and facade in honor of the team's trip to the World Series in the inaugural season of the new stadium. Kristen sorted through a large collection of Disney villains before settling on Maleficent, the evil queen from Sleeping Beauty.

Those pumpkins look like pictures. That is very impressive, did you have special tools?

Krissy said...

We print patterns out, then you tape the pattern on the pumpkin and outline the pattern onto the pumpkin with a little poker thingy. Then, you just have to cut along the lines.

Very nice. I still haven't bought our pumpkins. Maybe now I will since the costumes are finally done!

Nicely done. Dave, i should have some sort of comment about how the Yankees suck, but you know the song-and-dance.
