While I'm on the topic...

I grew up in the sticks, literally. I never understood why people wanted to go camping because I lived in the woods. It made much more sense to just come inside at bedtime and get a good night of restfull sleep. Part of growing up in the sticks is being bored. Afterschool I would get off the bus somewhere between 5 and 5:30. In the fall and winter months that didn't leave too much daylight hours to play. Not that I actually wanted to play when it was cold anyway. Well, I always looked forward to Halloween because I would get to use my creative skills and carve the family jack-o-lantern. As I got older I got more creative, I started carving skulls and cats and other stuff besides the scary face. So the other day when I got an email from my friend Joanna I was excited to see it was about pumpkins. Little did I know before opening the email just how cool it was going to be. Here are two of the examples of the pumpkins I found in my email. My creativity never matched this guy! So, I thought I'd share with you. Here's the link to his website and check the other pumpkins out. Hope ya'll enjoy them too. I think I'll try to do somthing like this--->
this year.

I got that email yesterday and it was AMAZING! I've never been able to carve a good pumpkin because the only thing I can draw is a stick figure and they don't really "fit" on a pumpkin!
