Now I ask you...since when is Blue (of Blues Clues fame) a traditional Halloween Jack O Lantern?!
I have to admit that this year, as big as my intentions were, I just didn't get into the Halloween crafts - I am hoping to make up for it with plenty of Christmas decorations.
But in playing along with the SITStahs - and in my meager attempt to win myself a lovely new (and badly needed) camera, I thought I would repost my
Jack Blue-o-lantern from last year.
(my boys wouldn't let me carve a pumpkin this year, all the pumpkins that came through our door required paint!!)
I had big plans - it was going to be elegant and pretty...and then Hubby stepped in.
"I want something more traditional" he said
"fine, pick out a stencil online and I will carve it"
this is what he picked...
And do you know how hard it is to transfer from flat piece of paper to large round pumpkin...and then to carve it?
The worst part, after the darn thing was carved once, I had to carve it again. I hadn't gone through enough of the incredibly thick skin for the darn thing to glow, and hubby wanted to be sure the boys saw how cool it was when it was glowing.
