Pumpkin 2008  

I went with something much simpler this year:

I know it's been done, but I still like him.

I decided to go for simple because a) it's been a terrible month and an even worse week, and b) there will never be any pumpkin to beat last year's Pumpkins of Awesome.

But in the meantime, here's where I put him:

From outside, looking up to the entryway window:

As you can see, I had to put some Reinforced Concrete under him.  And also a dictionary.  (Yes, I actually did take a college class in reinforced concrete once upon a time.)

I don't really have the time or the energy, but I still want to buy more pumpkins on sale and make more pumpkin seeds and try some pie filling.  (Can she manage it?  Tune in next time!)

is cute!
I'm jealous of everybody who has a pretty carved pumpkin :D

You should at least buy one of the weeny teeny ones and carve it. :) They're a lot easier to handle than the big ones. I forget... EVERY year I forget... how hard it is to scoop them out, how hard it is to cut them open, etc. etc. etc.

I'm pretty sure I haven't carved a pumpkin since I was in Girl Scouts. and in the real troop not the horseback one. There is the very real possibility with that one that I would carve my hand rather than the pumpkin.

but the end result is so fun and cool and shiny!

Aw, thanks. *huggle* (Next year I'll make a *huggle* one.)

(What, no! I'm not nuts, I'm not making any *huggle* pumpkin ever!)

yay cute! i didn't grow or buy a pumpkin this year, FAIL by me on all counts. N actually went out to find a pumpkin yesterday (apparently pumpkins are very important to him) and couldn't.

why are you taking a class in reinforced concrete I wonder....

I ask because I am a lab technician for a concrete manufacturer...

Oh, I took one almost eight years ago, back when I was still struggling through a civil engineering degree. I never finished that degree, and I'm in school for Computer Science now. :) But I hate to get rid of textbooks.

Cute punkin! The fact that you have a reinforced concrete textbook is geeky and adorable.

Aw, thanks. :)
