Pumpkin Carving, 2011 retrospective

Each year my mother and I carve pumpkins for Halloween. I’m not certain how this got started, but it’s quite the affair now. We get patterns, pumpkins, tools, and far too much ambition for our own good. Then we get to it and it always takes longer and is more difficult than we imagine it will be. However, there is always wine and laughter so it’s good. These are last year’s pumpkins (we coerced dad into doing one as well) – note that a couple of them have the backs carved as well so they cast shadows to enhance the image. I will post the full story of the 2012 pumpkins soon…
