October – and Pumpkin Carving Thoughts


It’s here – the month of Thanksgiving and Halloween. Of leaves turning and crisp nights. One of the most fantastic months of the year! October.

I’m a  huge fan of this month. I love carving pumpkins, finishing my harvest, and spending time with family over the holiday weekend. I love picking apples and doing corn mazes. I love walks through crispy leaves with my many layers of sweaters. And I even like those pumpkin spice lattes everyone is talking about. October is that calm before the winter storms and I intend to enjoy every minute of it.

But back to pumpkins… as you can see above, I am a pretty fair pumpkin carver. This year I’m already plotting. I think I might be leaning towards a Minecraft design. Possibly a creeper. I find the hardest part is settling on a design… any ideas?
