Carved Pumpkin Contest WINNER! Yeah!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! Isn't this a strange holiday? Wherein grown-ups feel compelled to go against centuries of ingrained reactions towards sweets, and lavish them upon children with glee ~ wherein mothers spend countless hours putting together costumes that will only last a few hours and end up stained and nasty within a single days' time ~ wherein grown men ignore all safety precautions and use power tools to shape ungainly mountains of squash & then proceed to light it on fire in a triumphant show of pyromania~



This was my husbands contribution this year ~
AND he won the carving contest ~ again :-D
























He looked even better when the flames were shooting out of his eyes , and out of the little pumpkin's mouth, ~ both of them had these huge scented wax candles in them, which were green and red, and once it got really hot and started melting the wax, it looked great , wax dripping out of the mouths and eyes of both pumpkins, hehehehehe. We used a fire starter & a few pieces of kindling, which gave us about 1 1/2 hours of steady flames, melting wax, and burning pumpkins. :-D
