Sunday, November 6, 2011


Yes, I know it's November 6th, but better late than never...

We made a quick trip to the Pumpkin Patch for pumpkins.

Nathan thought he should get this ginormous thing to carve.

I did have him talked into this slightly more reasonably sized pumpkin, but it had some bug problems.

He finally settled on this larger-than-usual-for-him beauty.

And yes, he wanted to photograph all the goop inside his pumpkin.

That's me, the official Pumpkin Goop Cleaner Outer.

The finished pumpkins

I was fortunate that Nathan chose a simple costume this year. No pattern. No ridiculous fabric fluff. Very little sewing.
Mario only needed to have some big yellow buttons glued onto a pair of thrifted overalls and a cool hat made of fleece. I followed this tutorial, but increased the measurements to fit his head.
