As Mr. Pond wasn't able to post last week, and as today is a holiday, we get another week off the blogalectic. And you get pictures of my first pumpkin-carving experience.
But first, Maia and her vanquished enemy (she knocked over the tall pumpkin several times).
Lou, who has some experience with pumpkin-carving, cut into the tall one and cleaned it out for me.
...and I, not being quite confident enough to replicate this sort of thing, drew a simple face on and proceeded.
It didn't turn out half bad, I think.
Also not half bad: the pumpkin spice lattes we made from the cut-out parts.
I'm live-podcasting with The Hog's Head tonight right during trick-or-treating time, so I'm not sure whether I'll manage to dress up or not, but here's Lou and I from last year:
Have a good and safe All Hallows' Eve, and happy All Saints' Day tomorrow!
