pumpkin-time again

You may remember Joseph's Owl Pumpkin from last year's Woodland Creature contest at his school. This year their class's theme is spiders! Mama just loves spiders. Anyway - on our way home from a wedding in Virginia last weekend (more on that soon) we stopped of in Nashville at the Sherwood's annual Pumpkin Carving. We have missed this for the last few years and were so glad the timing worked out. Mama stenciled and Daddy carved. Then we carefully trucked our pumpkin back home and finished decorating it. Can you say interstate pumpkin - purchased in Virginia, carved in Tennessee, decorated in Arkansas? Last night Joseph tried on his costume for the Trick or Treat Trail happening at school this week and posed with the completed pumpkin.
