The Pumpkins Are Carved On The Porch With Care

The Watson porch is officially ready for trick or treaters!  Remember me saying something about buying almost 20 pumpkins this year?  Well, the family set up shop in the unfinished part of our basement last night, because it was too cold and windy to work outside, and finished carving them.  We started a couple of days ago when it was still warm enough to work outside.  Now, not all of them were carved, some were left alone and some of them now have a little flare.  Here's what we came up with!

Any time Jonathan can get his hands on glitter, he is one happy camper. He had a ball doing this one!

We found this neat pumpkin carving set for the whopping price of $1 that had tools to perfectly shape triangles and circles.  Jonathan came up with this idea.

My husband's mad-talented freestyle skills with a monogrammed pumpkin!

And again with this "cute" pumpkin recreated from a Halloween card Jonathan got from Great Grandma Lorraine.

This would be my idea from the stencils I found on Country Living's website. 

This one is from Country Living as well.  I just had to do this one!  Too cool!

And my husband, Jon, came up with this creation.  Again with the crazy freestyle skills!


  1. I love it! Awesome. You have a very talented family.

  2. I'd love to see them all lit up!
    And you DO have a very creative family:)
