Sunday afternoon found Abe and kids carving masses of pumpkins-- one for each member of the family. I'd like to draw your attention to the top left "Picasso-esque" pumpkin that was carved by Clark. I'm was so honored when he told me I was his inspiration for it.
I know there is a lot of work to be done to carve all those pumpkins, but I just do not want to help. I like to say I'm allergic to pumpkins, which I'm probably not really, although the guts do make my hands sting. But don't you think saying "I'm allergic" packs a lot more punch that just, "I just don't want to."
Elinor really stepped up this year and gutted 9 of the 10 pumpkins and carved 1 of them. She was a pumpkin work-horse. Clark carved 4 and Abe carved 5.
It is very nice being married to a tradition-czar like Abe:)
