Officially Ready for Halloween

Ryan & I waited until the last day that we had free to carve our pumpkins. Here in the South pumpkins go bad fast! In fact, when we went to carve our two pumpkins one of them was already bad. :( At least there was still a good one left. I'm crossing my fingers it makes it until Halloween for all those cute trick-or-treaters.

I let Ryan do the manly part of it. I always have a hard time cutting the top off and scoping out the insides. It really takes some elbow grease! This was me trying to help with the ooey gooey part. Ryan let me do the actual design carving. I think he was pretty tired at that point. It was hard work. I don't remember it being so labor intensive before. It was worth the end result though.
Our friendly ghost. We'll call him Edward.

I thought it would be fun to include some pictures I came across recently from when we were engaged in college. This was the first time that we carved pumpkins together. (I think mine was better.) :oP
