Hello Halloween, you are just around the corner.
It's time again for the Korte/Hawkins/Tressler families to pull out the plastic carving knives and go to town on pumpkins. We started carving yesterday, and at some point during the day my sister-in-law went to a pumpkin patch and added 8 more pumpkins to the over 35 we had in the garage already. I did five yesterday. Today Nick took the day off work just so we could all carve pumpkins together as a family. Here are my pumpkins so far for 2010:
Now don't think I'm jumping on the Rangers bandwagon just because they are in the World Series. I'm not. I'm happy for them, but ultimately I'm just not much of a baseball fan.

It has shading as well as carved out areas. i'm pretty happy with it.Woody and Buzz, from Toy Story:In honor of the 7th film coming out next month, I decided to revisit the Harry Potter theme. I last carved Harry Potter pumpkins in 2006, but these patterns are all new since that time. Here's Harry:Severus Snape and Mad-eye Moodyand Dobby, with Harry's name. I just love the way Dobby says "Harry Potter".
