The Pumpkin Heir

My kids are really too old for your basic Halloween celebrating. Oh, they have what they call "Halloween parties," which is just an excuse to have a party. They're all way too cool to dress up in costume. After all, that stuff like trick-or-treating and carving pumpkins is so imma...





Never mind.



Note: We know, we know. This is not technically a pumpkin. We kept telling that to Heir 2. We said, "That's not really a pumpkin. It's a gourd and you can't carve a gourd." Is it any wonder he never listens...

Notes 2: Yes, he has way too much time on his hands. I think he needs considerably more homework before he carves anything else that can't be carved.

Well, clearly it CAN be carved, and quite righteously I might add.

Good job, Heir 1!

I think it's good that he is starting small. No sense ruining a big pumpkin due to a lack of experience..

A gourd may indeed be carved. As may watermelons, turnips, potatos and any other vegetative matter that is thick enough to hold it's shape once hollowed out (sounds like some poeple I know).

Don't be so small-minded, think about it! You can be famous in a trizillions year ahead when the archeologists finds the remainings of an old house ruin full of interesting carvings from the industrial age.

That is if your house is built really strong, which I suspect it has been if you consider the amount of time it took to make it ready to move into....
