The first two pumpkins that I carved for our party molded like crazy and I threw them away on the Monday before Halloween. I liked the haunted house enough (plus it went nicely with my graveyard!), so I recarved that.
Here's what it looks like lit up. You can kind of see the ghosts that projected on the wall. I still don't think I got that part quite right, but oh well!
And here's my favorite for this year. Since we had so many little kids last year, I wanted to make a more kid friendly design. I chose Abby Cadabby from Sesame Street. Pyper loves her and I thought the design was cute (though I'll admit that I thought it looked like an easier design. Ummm...not so much!)
