As far as seasons go, fall is a strong contender for the best one out there. I particularly love fall holidays like Thanksgiving and Halloween where the primary objective is to enjoy yourself. Now that fall and October are here, it’s time to get serious about being ridiculous. Despite my lack of artistic talent and hand-eye coordination I love pumpkin carving.
My love of carving notwithstanding, Emily made Eko and I return these pumpkins last year
The rule is that each creature in the house gets to pick one, and only one, pumpkin
Some people think carving pumpkins is a joke, but around here it’s a serious operation.

“I NEED 50 CCs OF PUMPKIN, STAT!”
Halloweens of years past have been a two man (or one man/one dog, or one man/one crocodile) operation but this year we’ve got Pumpkin Penny on the team with us
In the end, my pumpkins never turn out quite as glorious as I imagine them, but it’s never not fun carving them. I’m officially on the look out for fun dog-themed pumpkin carving ideas so be sure to let me know if you have any good ones!
