Halloween Fun with the kids

This is my first Halloween in Ontario with my sister’s family.  Today we carved pumpkins (by we I mean “me” mostly.)

I have to say I am really impressed with the pumpkins here in Southern Ontario – big, orange, ripe and so easy to clean out!  My niece chose the white pumpkin to design her face on – these must be a hybrid of some sort as I swear it smells, looks and tastes like a honeydew melon inside.

I carved the orange one and my niece drew her design on the white one but it was too difficult for her to carve it, so I finished it for her.

We are pretty happy with the results!

I did suffer an injury though…

Sliced right across the pad of my right index finger (Top Tip: Don’t hold THE BLADE of the knife when trimming the edges!)  My sister applied first aid… I think these are Troll bandaids?  It wasn’t too bad thankfully as I have clients later!

Hope everyone has a fun Halloween!
