Well here we are, it's 4 pm and the pumpkins have all been carved and are arranged in the garage for easy set up. We have a game plan for setting them up out in the yard, and now all we do is wait for the time to start. It won't be long now and the mad dash to get all of the pumpkins in the yard, get candles inside, and light every one of them as the crowds start to arrive. It will be slow and steady at first, and then it will be crazy busy. But for now, we have quiet before the storm and Nick even went to take a nap.
Here's what we carved today:
As usual, my two difficult pumpkins were saved for today, although neither of them took as long as I originally thought they would. The kraken attacking a pirate ship took me 39 minutes and the locomotive took me on hour and 36 minutes.
