Halloween has never really been a major celebration in Australia…… well not for us anyhow. But last year we had so many Trick-Or-Treaters. So this year we thought we would do a little to join in. Ben and I bought our first pumpkins to carve.
I cut lids and opened them and thought ewwwwww really??!!!! I wasn’t expecting so much slop!! I also didn’t really have any idea of what we would carve. So I did what every good researcher does and ‘Googled’ it – Halloween carving templates and How to carve a pumpkin. I had everything I could possible need right on the computer screen – Thank you Mr Google!
Ben and Andrew picked a scarey design and I picked a more smiley one. I used a small stanely knife as I found that the easiest. This is what we ended up with (don’t look too closely!).
And in the dark…..
It was a bit of fun. Ben is excited to put them out tomorrow and hand out lollies to the Trick-Or-Treaters. So I think this is when I am supposed to say ‘Happy Halloween!’ (I’m a Newbie).
Linking up with Life Made Lovely Monday (I know this is my second link up but there is so many lovely things happening!)

Pumpkins look great as does the scary face. Good one Ben (and Belinda)
WOW! For the first time? These are fantastic! I’m impressed. I hate the goop too, as does my son. My daughter though will stick her hands right in! It’s a fun tradition to keep. Even the smell becomes part of the fond memory. 🙂
