pumpkin time...

pumpkin carving , originally uploaded by Emma Bradshaw.

little pumpkins carved by my little men, well not technically carved but they drew the faces on for me to cut out! During the carving they liked to pull as many scary faces as they could too, which was very amusing! It's funny how this harvest tradition has turned into a Halloween ritual...

"Oh!—fruit loved of boyhood!—the old days recalling,
When wood-grapes were purpling and brown nuts were falling!
When wild, ugly faces we carved in its skin,
Glaring out through the dark with a candle within

John Greenleaf Whittier, The Pumpkin 1850
