Ross carves his own jack o'lantern

Since Ross has been using a jackknife now and again, I figured it was time to let him carve his own jack o'lantern (with adult supervision, of course). He was absolutely thrilled, and he didn't slip or cut himself at all.

He redrew features a couple of times before he got down to work.

Pumpkin faces

I think he was surprised at how hard pumpkin carving can be!

It's a space alien (of course!) with extra eyes. Pretty darn cool!

What a fabulous Jack-o-lantern! Halloween looks like so much fun. (We've only just started celebrating it here in Australia.)
