This year, we bought two pumpkins. One for each kid, but really one for each of us.
Today we carved the pumpkins with the girls....good 'ole family fun! I determined that Zak didn't do much pumpkin carving as a child because he had NO clue how to do it, and every time I told him the next step he'd pretend like he knew it.
For example, he started to CARVE prior to cutting the top off and scooping out the guts and seeds! Like, Duh! I, on the other hand, am an experienced carver. My brother and I did it every year, and my mom would roast the seeds.
Before we started to carve the pumpkins, Zak would not tell me what he had planned to design. So, I decided that I was just going to have to do the same and create a pumpkin that would marvel the internet. THEN, we decided that we'd ask my blog readers to VOTE on the best pumpkin. This is where audience particpation is key, here are the choices:
This is "Happy" without a light....
Here is "Scary" without a light...
Here they are side by side lit up (where they both look much better)...
THERE IS A LOT RIDING ON THIS, FOLKS. WE HAVE A BIG BET! You must VOTE! We are also taking ideas for what to NAME the pumpkins, cause every pumpkin must have a name. For the purpose of selecting your favorite, please refer to the pumpkins as "Happy" and "Scary."
Also, because I don't trust that Zak will not attempt to rig the vote via anonymous fake votes, please write your name in your comment.
