Lastly, I liked this little pumpkin just because he had a long curved stem pointing straight over his face like an elf hat.
We had a few other pumpkins that didn't make it into the camera, but believe me they were spectacular. Last year I let the kids each carve a pumpkin. This year they were so tired from poking holes around their patterns that their hands had no strength to hold the pumpkin saw.
Maybe, next year Creative Type Dad will come out with a nice triangle eye, nose and smile pattern.
