Brian carving his scary skeleton.
Look how well it turned out. True artists!
Looking good on the front porch ... sure to scare some kids!
Last Sunday Brian and I thought it would be a great idea to buy pumpkins at the grocery store, and carve them so that we could get in the Halloween spirit. We bought the 2 best pumpkins, and a carving kit. We used these templates to make the most amazing ghost and skeleton (in remembrance of the ACL skull). I truly believe they turned out wonderful! We immediately put them on our front porch, after all of our hard work, to show them off to the world. The next day Brian had some buddies over, and they commented on our scary pumpkins. So Brian and I went out to have a look, and sure enough there sat the two SCARIEST pumpkins I had ever seen! Thanks to Houston's humidity and 80 degree heat, our pumpkins had grown fuzzy, furry, gray mold. It was every where ... crawling out of all the holes we had carved ... it looked like my ghost, and Brian's skeleton had grown beards. It was disgusting! Brian almost threw up as he instantly carried them to the trash can. All that hard work just to be thrown away. We now know not to carve pumpkins in Houston. Next year we will just draw on them. Lesson learned. We still had a great time carving...
