This is supposed to look like Lord Voldemort. On a pumpkin. I found the template here. This was the first time I tried to carve a design more elaborated than the usual cut-three-triangles-and-a-mouth-like-shape-thing, and it was quite fun. Easier than I thought, actually. I got some cheap carving tools from the dollar store, and my kitchen knife, and got carving. It took me about three hours, in which Tim read Terry Pratchett to me and the girls, until both girls fell asleep snoring on the sofa.

So, how are your celebrations going? We´re having 5 children here for a sleepover, so there will be 9 children alltogether in our house. I´ll take them for a little trick or treating through our neighbourhood, read them a ghoststory in the dark and play some creepy music. We´ll eat some cookies...


(Yeah, very halloweeny, I know ;) ), and bob some apples...
 
(even more halloweeny!), and giggle till it´s past midnight. And with this, I...
... raise my glass to you. Mine contains raspberry tea ;) Wishing you great parties!

wow the pumpkin looks amazing, you've got skills. Your night sounds like it's going to be a blast. Thanks for the comment, hope you like your piece of art as much as we like ours. I would love to know how it turns out.

We hacked at our pumpkins for 20 minutes before our trick or treaters arrived. So to say I am impressed would be an understatement.

Very cool. And thanks for linking up!
