While Tom and I were off touring gardens and doing some antique shopping, Jill and Isaac and Irene went to a local pumpkin patch Saturday afternoon. When we got home about 6:00, we grabbed a bite to eat, picked our pumpkins from the nearby Safeway store, and joined them by 7:00 for some Jack-o-lantern fun.
My pumpkin was oddly dry and stringy inside, almost like a spaghetti squash.Isaac selected a misshapen pumpkin and used the scared side for the face.
I think Tom won the creativity award with his dented Jack-o-lantern.
Irene worked very intently on her kitty face.
Jill created an owl from her green pumpkin.
I made my standard happy face Jack-o-lantern.
Isaac's was very creative too.
Irene's cat caught a mouse. Jill created ghosts out of a white pumpkin. We lit them all up to admire our work.
Now they will adorn our porches in the week leading up to All Hallowed's Eve.
Trick or treat!
