Good gracious! This is a gruesome post!Lucy
You crazy Americans!!! We EAT pumpkins here! ;)
Great looking lanterns! The only pumpkins we have so far are the smaller sugar pumpkins. Don't think we're going to be carving those anytime soon though!
Debbie girl !!!! I think you may be nudging me into Halloween happiness ? LOLAre you on the lam for the crime ? .. how is the hide out place working for you ?Some one had the NERVE to steal one of my pumpkins from my front entrance ... I'm SO MAD !!!!!I love a lit pumpkin ... OK ... loads of lit pumpkins at night : )
LOL. Debbi, you're too funny. My pumpkin is still sitting on the porch waiting to be carved. I meant to get it done earlier this month, but I guess it keep better longer if you save them so I just did a good thing right???Hopefully we'll get to ours today. I have a terrible cold (or allergies?) and feel miserable right now but the kids want to do the down town trick or treat today. I hope the drugs help me to feel better or I'll have to drag myslef out of the house later. I tried a cold med today since my sinus pills didn't seem to work yesterday. UGH!
Okay, I sort of get the second and third one. But what's with the first one that looks like someone just tore in with a sharp object and became distracted? Is that a younger monkey at large here? Debbi, you haven't found small animals mysteriously dead, have you? Remember, my husband is the psychiatrist...Brenda
Addendum: I hope you didn't take that the wrong way! I was aiming at humor there!Brenda
Addendum to addendum: And I've been up half the night scratching myself bloody with poison ivy... So perhaps my mood is bordering on the macabre. Or insanity. Brenda
Hey - your serial killer has creative carving skills! I like those cool cut-outs, especially the bat! (I hack at 'em with a machete!)
Nice carving job on the Monkey's pumpkins Deb. By the way your post title really grabbed my attention today, lol.
I saw the suspect, wandering the streets of Kaufman just hours ago. I'd turn her in to the police, but she just gave me the most beautiful passion vine, so she's bought my silence...
Brenda (see comment above), the first one is a bat, look at it when it's glowing, you can tell...
Hi Lucy, thanks for stopping by.Hi Foxy, we eat them too. Shibaguyz, I bet ya'll make something yummy out of them. Hi Joy, DURN the rat finks who stole your pumpkin. I hid in plain sight at a street festival. They couldn't pick me out of the crowd.
Hi Cinj, hope you feel better. Brenda, it was a big monkey carved hole. I put a bat on a toothpick in it to make it look like something. No socio or psycopaths here, just a bunch of silliness. Hope you feel better. Try alcohol with a little vicks vapor rub in it applied to the itch. It helps me.
Racquel, Thanks. I am a serial vegetable slaughter and can't help but post about it. Hi Nola, it was great to see you today. Thanks for not ratting me out. Enjoy the passion vine. It is the blue/white native variety.
Diana, the next time I murder a vegetable, I will so use my machete. Thanks for contributing to my criminal ways.
Wow! that is some impressive pumpkin carving! Who would attack such a nice pumpkin? How sad...
Ingenious idea about the bat and toothpick, Debbi! I'm so uncoordinated I'd always manage to stab myself while trying to carve pumpkins, resulting in a somewhat gorier Hallowe'en tableau than we'd anticipated. Now we just set out decorative pumpkins and only carve them if we plan to cook 'em!
Hi Sherry, It seems I have to attack a vegetable every few months. Can't help myself.
Hi ofb, We were just in Canton looking at antique greating cards and saw Hallowe'en spelled like that. Can't remember what the story was on that. Do you know? Maybe it would be better to let Silence carve the Jack-O-Lanterns.
The one with the bat is my favorite when they are all aglow. They are all cute, though. Wow, that was a long time ago for us at our house. You are such a fun mom!
Thanks Barbee, The monkeys don't think I am too much fun when it comes to homework, bedtime, and teeth brushing .
What creative pumpkins you have here Deb. I have always wanted to have a pumpkin carving party. Maybe next year.
Lisa, my family does it every year. Do it, it's fun.
