Mostly, it was a fun experience but I let husband do most of the work because he's a pro. We should have waited a few days to carve it because several large gnat families decided it was the perfect place to get cozy. Gahross.
Since we don't celebrate Halloween, we decided to carve something of more significance to us - a cross and a fish. Not too shabby especially for my first time.
On another note, is anyone else kind of sad that October is already behind us? Crazy. Now I'm going to go weep over the last can of pumpkin in my pantry and the nearly empty container of pumpkin spice.
