Happy Halloween!

Have I ever told you that my husband can draw?  Well, he can.  And he's amazing at it.  His first "love note" to me consisted of a car drawn on a napkin...he was 16.  :-)

Since we've been married, he has drawn all of our pumpkin designs.  It all started with a mouse...


Then, things got a little beastly...


Amazing, right?  No stencil or anything!

So this week, while I was in the kitchen cooking pumpkin, he was sitting at the table designing his latest masterpiece...Wile E. Coyote!


Step 1: Clean out pumpkin guts (ew!).


Step 2: Tape drawing to pumpkin.


Step 3: Use a thumbtack to poke holes.


Step 4: Carve the pumpkin, connect-the-dot style.


Step 5: Marvel at handiwork.


Step 6: Put a candle in it and ooooh and aaaaah.

"Ooooooh!  Aaaaaaaah!"


Happy Halloween, everyone!
