This year James was going to pick out and carve his own pumpkin. We went to a couple places looking for a “small medium size pumpkin” as James described and finally settled on one at the local Walmart. James made a workstation at the kitchen table and went to work, using a template he had found in one of the pumpkin stencil books that we have. When finished the pumpkin had a crescent moon on it with a couple of bats flying. Not bad for a first pumpkin, hopefully James will carve more pumpkins this year.
