Pumpkins 2007

This year, we got our pumpkins out of our neighbor’s field (with his permission, of course!).  Cut them open, scooped out the guts, put them outside for a carving extravaganza the next day, which turned into 3 days later.  Being the smart California transplant, I figured I’d better leave the tops off of the pumpkins so that they didn’t rot inside from the daytime heat.

So, finally, the kids brought them inside, took off one of the tops, and all these fruit flies came out– eeeeuwwww!  The insides were all moldy and fly-ey and gross. 

They are back outside (duh) and uncarved.  DS1 drew on his with a Sharpy, but that’s as much as anyone was willing to do! 

And thus concludes our Jack-o-Lantern saga for Halloween 2007.

Happy Halloween!!
