The last time we talked about pumpkin carving was two years ago and let's just say a lot has changed since then. Not about the pumpkin carving itself. There aren't really too many new advances you should be aware of, but running across this post from 2012 was a nice reminder on a personal level of why we "do" this little blog here - to preserve our memories and their lives as they were and where they are now.
Yeah, I just got all sentimental talking about pumpkin carving. That's probably a pretty good indicator how much I enjoy this time of year (again, top two holidays for me).
Recently, over at my new beau's house, a group of friends gathered to carve some pumpkin guts over music by The Cramps and a silent Nosferatu playing in the background. It doesn't really get much better than this folks.
My friend Laura really went for it this year when she decided she wanted to carve a pumpkin in the likeness of the fall night sky on the prairie in the Northern Hemisphere. And well, she succeeded, especially with the help of her power drill.
Finally, we were all done (I made the skeleton hand while the boys went with classic Jack-O-Lanterns).

Black cats and pumpkins were meant for each other, don't you agree?
