Jaime and Laura's family gave our kids some pumpkins. Louisa made a really, really good pumpkin pie. Matthew carved his for a Jack-o-lantern.
When we were kids, my mom only let us use magic markers. Then she would save the pumpkin meat for food.
I guess that means we are much better off than we were as children. We can afford to use a pumpkin this way. (moral quandary: should we?)
The results were pretty good. I remember in college at U.W.-Madison we had a pumpkin carving contest. I did a Sleestack head. I probably still had a crush on Holly at the time (picture here).
I didn't win. Matt's pumpkin would have beat me.
Nice job, Matthew.
