Arts and Crafts

Abby and I just finished carving the “perfect punkin”. I haven’t scooped out or carved a pumpkin in about 20 years. In fact, the last time I remember doing it was with Dean in the garage a long, long time ago. So, is it any wonder that I feel a sense of accomplishment?

Is the pumpkin truly perfect? Nope. Did it take me trying out 4 different knives before I figured out how to carve it? Yep. Could Matt, the artist of the family, have made a much better face? Definitely. But I’ve got to tell you- when I put the candle in the pumpkin and Abby began singing “Happy Birthday to Punkin”- I’ve never felt prouder.
