Getting out the pumpkin "guts".
Mr. Cactus and Paul
Only three of us at home this Halloween, but my daughter Amy called and said they were carving pumpkins with the boys. I remember the first year Amy was dating Dano (our son-in law) and he said he had never carved a pumpkin before. We looked at him with astonishment! How could that be possible? He promptly sat down and began working on his pumpkin and carved with meticulous detail. He was in. We knew Amy could marry him after that.
Mr. Cactus made his a "4th of July" pumpkin. Notice the fire cracker nose and the mouth that spells "Boom"!
Paul came out pretty early this morning wearing his costume as he headed out to school. He's 17 and a Junior in High School, but still loves the traditions of Halloween.
This year he's going as Wesley from the movie "Princess Bride". I think he has watched that movie so many times he can now quote every line.
