Happy Halloween 2009!

Every year for Halloween the 3 sisters get together and do some pumpkin carving. This tradition started a few years back and it's been something we always look forward to at this time of year, besides trick-or-treating with the kids. I have to say our pumpkin carving style kind of reflects our different personalities. Laura, the artist, of course likes to make her own creations and never ever uses stencils. Tara, the lawyer who always likes a good challenge, chooses the most complicated stencil she can find and creates an elaborate design fit for any professional pumpkin carver. I, on the other hand, choose the most simplest and easiest design to make. FYI: I have also accidentally decapitated a cat I was making. I'm not sure exactly what it says about me. Maybe I don't like challenges. Or maybe I'm just not creative or artistic. But I like to think that I appreciate simple things. Isn't it the simple things in life that we later appreciate the most?

Tara's "Graveyard Scene"

Laura's "Decapitated Boyfriend"

Tina's "Ichabod's Fate" (Yeah, I didn't make it up.)

Carmen's "Pirate Boy" and Rachel's "Macy, just Macy"

Very impressive carving ladies!

Thanks, Troutie!

Tina, I actually thought yours was more intricate this year. It looks kinda cool in the pic.

Lol Macy, just Macy. She's funny. You can't see mine very well!

Peter liked mine a little tooooo much. That bloody bastard!
