Oh my goodness where has the week gone? I am glad because it's that much closer to Monday... Anyone know what Monday will bring for me? Somebody wonderful and Beautiful back into my daily life.. Ok Before I get to far into this post. No We did not go back to Target. I cant believe the girls did not even ask to go.. Strange... I think we were all just to tired. You bet we will be going today or at least I will be..
On to the pumpkins. I totally love pumpkins at Halloween. They are just so fun and happy to look at. I also love to watch people carve pumpkins . It just fascinates me... The reason being because I have always been afraid to try. It was not until last year did I even attempt to carve a pumpkin as an adult. I was nervous at first but in the end it was cute and simple but fun!!
I was looking on line for tips and I came across this site Pumpkin carving 101 it had some very good tips and a fun history of pumpkin carving. Did you know that pumpkin carving started out with turnips and gourds? Also the reason is kinda cool how pumpkin carving started.
jack-o-lanterns, carved from turnips or gourds, were set on porches and in windows to welcome deceased loved ones, but also to act as protection against malevolent spirits. Burning lumps of coal were used inside as a source of light, later to be replaced by candles. Cool .Look at this cool 3D carved pumpkin. I think it is amazing and a work of art.
My question of the day Is do you all carve pumpkins every year?
