….in the Cormier family
This is my husband’s 37th pumpkin that he’s carved and my son-in-law’s first. I think my husband has some serious competition.
Yesterday I luckily found this large beauty. In my neighbourhood they were almost completely sold out when I finally got around to purchasing one and they weren’t reduced in price. It weighed a ton and I was glad that I parked close by.
This year I had the pleasure of cleaning the guts from the inside of the pumpkin.
Now that the messy part was done, my husband could focus on the design and carving out the face of this year’s Jack O’lantern.
Here are the two finished pumpkins, side by side. You be the judge.
It was a perfect night for trick or treating. Both my husband and I sat outside with a glass of wine in hand as we greeted about 46 children. That may not seem like a lot of children to you but last year we only had 2. I leave you with a few more photos of Hallowe’en at the Cormier and Turner house. Enjoy!
