My friends, this pumpkin was solid through and through. I worked up a sweat just trying to get the lid off, and broke the stem in the process. And not only was there plenty of filling, but it was hard! Like, none of that just reach in with your hands and scoop some out business, that would have gotten me nowhere. This thing required knives and spoons. It was not messing around.
The mister had his own unique issues with his pumpkin though. It was quite certainly the juiciest pumpkin I have ever seen in my life. As in each scoop of guts came out dripping, and he had to use a paper towel several times to sop up the soup at the bottom of the pumpkin. It was crazy.
I know I should have cleaned him up a little bit for his close-up, but I kind of couldn't resist. What is really amazing about these shots is that there is no candle inside. The contrast in colors and the regular overhead light made him glow quite perfectly.
Ok, ok enough of my little pumpkin, here are all of his friends.
And the process.
So there, proof that I am doing everything in my power to remain on the holiday at hand.
How is your Halloween so far?
