Carving Pumpkins

Art and I carved pumpkins. Art carved a wolf and I carved an owl. They turned our really cute. I hadn't ever carved a pumpkin other than the normal pumpkin faces.

Look at little Sam watching Art. He always has to be at the center of attention.

I bought the umbrella holder at a thrift store for about a $1. Then I found some "weeds" at Michael's for $1. I needed a lot more weeds to add to my container. I actually found a bunch at the Dollar Tree this past weekend. I spent a total of $6 for my arrangement.

I am still trying to decided where to put it. Right now it's near the front door. Every time I walk around the corner the weeds brush my legs and scare me half to death. The other morning I almost screamed bloody murder when I felt them on my legs and then I remembered.
