Halloween Pumpkin

This was from one of those "Pumpkin Masters" kits.

The pattern was listed as "easy".

It was not.

It took me over an hour to trace and cut out. But I'm happy with the way it turned out.

We were supposed to go to the movies last night. Joe said he wasn't in the mood to give out candy to the cute little kids in costume this year.

That was fine by me but I ended up not feeling well so we stayed home again.

I feel fine today. That actually worries me a little. That used to happen to me all the time before my kidney disease went into remission(feel awful, be sure I was coming down with something, and then feel totally fine the next day. It is actually one of the warning signs of the type of kidney disease that I have).

Luckily I am having some blood work done next week so I won't have to wait too long to find out the results. I'm trying not to think(worry) about it.

In the end we didn't have to worry about any cute little kids in costumes because we only had about 3 groups of trick or treaters come by and they were all around 8th grade and above.
Not cute at all :)

Today we are going to the beach to have our Christmas Card photos taken. I'm trying to get a head start on the holiday madness. That doesn't mean I won't wait until the week before Christmas to mail them out ;)

very nice pumpkin!! no they are not easy to do, and we didn't even do one this year - I felt like your husband not being home. So we went to a party and had a blast.

you are a pumpkin master of the highest order, we skipped carving this year...too messy, too cold.

I quiver in the shadow of your awesomeness!

Hope you feel better and the blood test reveals you are doing well.

That pumpkin is awesome! I've taken to not even painting/carving ours at avoid a mess (OCD!) and to make them last a little longer, with our "harvest" type decor....maybe when Isaac is older, I'll take the plunge and cut old Jack up!
