Happy Halloween!

We were lucky that Hurricane Sandy mostly passed us by. We had lots of rain and wind, and the kids had no school, so we took advantage of their day off to carve some pumpkins. This year my 8-year old wanted a really scary pumpkin so I drew this and she carved it:

Scary Jack-o-Lantern

We were also at a fair earlier in the Fall and came across a pumpkin and gourd artist who carved the surface of pumpkins using carving tools for linoleum blocks. I had some at home so thought I'd give it a go:

My older daughter's is not quite done, but here's another couple of fun pumpkins she and her sister painted earlier this month:

Hope you all have a Happy Halloween!
