it's. . .pun'kin time!


the gang at Jessie & Michael's, ready for some serious pumpkin art: Michael, Riley, Monica, Nathan, and Jessie (clockwise from left)--and me, behind the camera


the beginning of my 'trick or treat' design




my beautiful niece riley, excited to be 'helping' carve the 'punkins' ("you made a mistake, erica? it's ok. you have to start over" was her constant refrain of comfort to my many 'dang it!'s)




concentrating hard on my design




say 'cheese!'




my work in progress slowly taking shape





showtime!




the proud (and tired) carvers

(many more pics to follow; this is only day 1 of 3 of the pumpkin marathon!)

You and your sisters are so talented! Or course I'm not surprised with the artistic genius of your pumpkins . . . we still haven't gotten around to carving and Halloween is tomorrow. Maybe I'll just let Danny paint it.

great documentation of the progress! maybe I'll just post a link to your blog, I'm way behind! It was so much fun. Can't wait to see what else you created! How did your pumpkin do in the work contest?
