Can you tell what it is? If not, it's a spooky tree with three bats flying overhead. Mr. Cowboy was so impressed with his mad pumpkin carving skills. I am more of a traditional gal. This one here was mine. That pumpkin was Swamp Thang! I loved its horns. Very creative. Little Cowpoke's pumpkin was simple and beautiful. He was very excited about it. And now for the final photo. Happy Halloween!!!!
Here are our works of art. The big tall pumpkin had the rotten part removed and we put some construction paper over the hole. The pumpkins look much nicer all lit up. Spooky!! The two little pumpkins were Big and Little Cowpoke's. Big Cowpoke's pumpkins had really cool eyes. He designed them him self. Then finally at 9:45, Mr. Cowboy finished his master piece.
Here are the master minds behind all the creativity. Cowpokette got in on some of the rotten pumpkin action. She thought she was big stuff. She was trying to pose with her spoon and the huge pumpkin. She is such a ham. I love that cheesy grin. I wonder who she gets it from?No, not him. Not Mr. Cowboy! Oh, and Mr. Cowboy did a work of art, that took forever for him to carve. He even got out some dental floss to try and cut the small parts. Oh dear. He said the only reason he did that design was because we all told him it was impossible. He did his entire pumpkin with dental floss and a steak knife. I told you nothing stops this man, not even washing rocks by hand!!
Here is our loot. The big tall pumpkin is rotten. You can see the big rotten spots on the bottom. We all made mental notes not to ever buy a rotten pumpkin again, even if it is at a discounted price, they stink. They stink like rotten pumpkin. Imagine that. But that didn't stop the missionaries. They just dug right in and got all sorts of messy. Little Cowpoke wanted to help. He was all about putting his hand in the pumpkin. Then there was his big brother. Big Cowpoke picked out this tiny pumpkin. And he was terrified to put his had inside that pumpkin to take out the innards. He didn't like the slimy and gooey insides. He used a spoon to clean out his pumpkin. He did not mind to pose with the goop. He just didn't want to touch it. I think it's so funny that Big Cowpoke will pick up nasty toads and frogs, but he won't touch pumpkin innards.
On Monday night we had the missionaries from church come over and help us carve our pumpkins. Of coarse we got the missionaries their own pumpkins too. Neither of them had ever carved a pumpkin before. Can you believe that! I have not carved a pumpkin in five years. We were way over do for some pumpkin carving.
