Pumpkins, Power Tools and Fingernail Polish!

We finally got around to carving our pumpkins as Julianne and Chris were about to head back to State. What started out as a normal pumpkin carving soon turned into a power tool pumpkin was 'SLIGHTLY" hard!

Madeline is a serious pumpkin planner

So is John David

Daddy started with the usual knife....

Decided it was NOT going to work this year..

And pulled out the real artillery

looks so funny to me!

the design had to change since the tool changed!

Design decisions...

Meanwhile Julianne decided Chris needed to finish her manicure..

"dorgeous" as Madeline used to say!

Never a dull moment....yes pumpkins can eat your hand!

More power tools.....Hank was in his element

Madeline's vampire pumpkin:)

John David is already acting like his older brother.....I CANNOT get a serious pic of him, he has learned from the best, Gardner!!

and again:)
