he's the pumpkin man and I'm his untalented wife

Earlier this we week carved our pumpkins. Christopher knocked out his perfect tick-tack-toe themed pumpkins in 40 minutes.
I had so many issues with mine that I ended up lying down on the deck with my hat covering my face, moaning and groaning. I meant to cut out the shape of the A, not the inside. I lost the top to the pumpkin. The whole thing is lopsided. 
I think I'll stick to eating pumpkin foods and stop trying to make pumpkin masterpieces.

I think yours looks lovely! I've never seen pumpkins carved like this! We always scraped the insides out and carved all the way through. I think I like this way though!

WAIT JUST ONE SECOND. I see that you did carve them totally out in the traditional manner. I just looked at the picture wrong hahahahaha. I need to go to bed. :)

hahahah that reminds me of our first pumpkin carving experience. I shot for a smiley face and the nose and eyes caved into a gaping cavernous hole with a crooked mouth. Tyler carved a silhouette family of a man and a pregnant lady with a stroller. It was perfection. I cried every time I looked at my monstrosity.

Ok when I first saw C's pumpkins, I thought he made them x's and o's like hugs and kisses. And your pumpkin looks just like something I would do. We are soul sisters, I tell you what.
