Carving our Pumpkin

The weekend before Halloween, Charlie and I decided to carve our pumpkin.  I was planning on a simple Jack-o-lantern face, but Marc had a great suggestion - we should get a carving kit. It had tools and stencils and everything.  Charlie picked this out to carve:
Lucky for me, it was one of the easy stencils.  Charlie and I were off!

We dug out the guts and then taped down the stencil.


And then Charlie got bored and started eating chips. 

 But I went right along, sawing out our design. 
This sawing part was harder than I thought.  So I started eating the chips.
Charlie decided to try and help.  I ate more chips.
They are some good chips.

The finished pumpkin!  It kinda looks like a goblin.  But Marc bought a cool light that you put in it and it changes colors.  That hides the imperfections :-)
