Pumpkin Preparation.

I just bought a gigantic pumpkin for a smooth $6. I love holidays and on Halloween I HAVE TO CARVE A PUMPKIN. Scary as can be and big as can be. That’s the deal. I also always use a real candle to light up the inside. It’s not safe, I realize that. However, there are some ‘real’ holiday tradition’s I just can’t let go of (think gifts from Santa and a bit of St. Patrick’s Day luck). So, a flickering flame it remains until something ‘really’ does catch fire.

To get to ignite mode, I have to prepare the pumpkin on the inside. I loathe it. I gag as I heave those stretchy, slimy, fibrous innards out and into the trash. Yuck. Once I make it through that round, I’m on a mission to carve to my delight (I tend to rush through this part freehand). No glitter and paper mache Martha S. This is Halloween. Save the confetti and sparkles for my Christmas Tree or New Year’s dress.

Mean creepy guy who looks good enough.

And runner ups for this years design:

Ichabod would scare the &^%$ out of me!

But then I see the black cat-o-lanterns and would love to do this!
