Pumpkin Carving 101

I bought a pumpkin the other night with Steve so that I could carve the hell out of it. I honestly don’t remember ever carving a pumpkin with my family, except for last year when I watched my sister do one for my neice. Totally odd hey?
Anyhow, I bought this glorious book of patterns and decided on an Igor science theme for my first pumpkin. I always wondered how the hell people carved pumpkins with such intricate patterns. We used to have this contest in elementary school where they would make a pumpkin display of all the pumpkins that kids carved. Well I can tell you right now that pretty much everyone had their pumpkin carved by their parents. There’s no way a kid can carve an entire scene from The Little Mermaid on the face of a pumpkin!

I didn’t know how my pumpkin was turning out because it’s really hard to tell when you’re just slashing away at the prncil marks, but I almost pooped a hammer when I lit a candle inside and saw what I had done:

AWESOME! I just hope someone doesn’t steal it or smash it!
