I was planning on something more dramatic for our Halloween Jack-O’-Lanterns but with Swinebread Jr. down with a cold, I had to quickly carve out our pumpkins this year. The big one on the left was mildly influenced by the pic below of the Spiderman villain Jack-O’-Lantern. I realize now that it would have been fun to make it even more like the image. Plus, I couldn’t quite figure out how to have the flames burning on the outside. Oh well, I think my pumpkin has the right attitude though.

The next one is the traditional design, which the SO likes, and I picked up a tiny painted pumpkin for Swinebread Jr. as this is his first Halloween.

I like those Jack-O-Lanterns. We carve ours tomorrow! Like cutting down your tree on Christmas day!

Nice carving job there, that's a pretty good likeness.

Nice! The sneer is very good. I'd planned on making a jack o'lantern scarecrow and putting it in the woods just visible from our road.

But, like a sap I gave up the last weekend before our snow to leaf raking. Stupid deciduous trees

Very cool. As for the flames, just douse the jack o' lantern in some gasoline. ;-)
