family friday :: pumpkin carving


this year we got a large family pumpkin instead of each boy getting his own. we planned on carving "carol" from where the wild things are since we had just seen it in the theatre. i sketched out a quick template and the hubby went to work on the inside of the pumpkin.

once the hubby got inside to take the seeds out, we realized that carving through 3" thick walls probably wasn't going to be much fun. we had no idea it was going to be so thick! i got out my trusty linocut tools from my college days and started carving away!

here's our final "carol". the hubby had to scrape the inside with an ice cream scoop for quite awhile just so the light would glow through. oh, and no candles here, that's a full-power garage light in order to be able to see anything!
