My absolute favourite thing to do just before Halloween is carve a pumpkin. I have carved a pumpkin every year since I can remember, and now I look forward to continuing the tradition with my son.
The Great Pumpkin Massacre of 2011
I don't like doing anything crazy difficult, just a simple little face. Last year I made a girly vampire pumpkin, and this year I carved a cute little face that I tried to make look like my son: a cute little nose, a toothless smile, and just a little bit of hair on top of his head :)
