we must have had at least 20 pumpkins, if not more. everyone went to town. we had patterns, but by the time i started mine, i didn't like any of the patterns left. i wasn't in the mood to do spooky so i freehanded a flower. i took my work very seriously, as you can see.
to top off things, several of us made harvest-y treats. i am very pleased with what i made, a little idea from a kids' activity book. these mini "jack-o-lanterns" were actually hollowed out oranges that had pumpkin pie filling baked in them. the faces were made possible by good ole sharpie and voila! cute little jack-o-lantern pumpkin treats! easy and fun! a two year old helped me make them!
