Carving Designer Pumpkins

Carving pumpkins is a family tradition dating back to when I was a little tyke.  When I got married, my wife and I would always buy a pumpkin and carve it, namely because I wanted to carve one and she wanted to bake!  Well this year my sister-in-law is staying with us, going to school and I found out that she had NEVER in her life carved a pumpkin!  Poor child!  So we packed up, went to Wal-Mart, picked out some great pumpkins and went to work!

Many of you know that I’m weird.  I’m one of those perfectionists that really isn’t happy with something unless I think it’s perfect, or at least as perfect as I can get it.  So it should come as absolutely no surprise that we have molds to carve pumpkins.  My sister-in-law wasn’t going to get away with two eyes, a nose and a mouth, oh no, she was going to CARVE a designer pumpkin.

We had lots of fun hanging out as a family, spending time with my sister who was visiting from Nashville and just joking around.  My sister is a rabid (yes I used the correct word, she’s crazy) hockey fan.  So she printed out the Nashville Predators logo and carved it on a pumpkin.  She’s much more creative than me.  I just carved a simple (lopsided) “WUC”.  My wife and sister-in-law finished their carvings and we had a beautiful orange quartet.
I’d love to hear some of your pumpkin carving stories!  Please share!!
