Our first Pumpkin Carving

Happy Halloween People!

This year my lovely daughter has been invited to 2 Halloween Parties so its going to be an action packed sugar filled weekend.

To get into the spirit, we have tried our hand at carving a pumpkin. Something that I felt a little nervous about. I've grown quite fond of my fingers over the years and don't really want to lose any.

After finding the right Pumpkin, and then searching the Internet for a suitable picture to carve, we decided on a great Cat picture, that looks like an "Evil Nu Nu" as Rose would say. For those of you that are not familiar with Nu Nu... she is our much loved Chihuahua. And I have to agree, the cat does look a lot like Nu Nu.

Here's a picture of our pumpkin... we are pretty happy with the end result.

Now I just need to get cracking on a Halloween outfit. Miss Rose has requested a Twiggy outfit. What is a Twiggy outfit I hear you say? I have been informed by Miss Rose that its the female character from Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds". I assure you she has not watched the movie, but she still insists on having Black Birds in her hair and scratches all over her face. This should be fun.

I will post some pics when the outfit is ready.

Happy Halloween!
