Halloween 2012

Since my introduction to Halloween (2006, when I moved to United States from India) I have been wanting to carve a pumpkin. But till last year Halloween came and went by for us without much fanfare.  Now with three year old around it took different dimension. It's fun dressing them, taking them to farm for pumpkin picking and finally carving one to make use of those pumpkins. Since I was doing for first time I wanted a simple design and definitely not scary. I am planning to use it for my Diwali decoration. So I started carving with just the kitchen knives,  soup ladle, ice cream scoop and got  very satisfying results. I would have to say it is  not at all difficult though little hand twisting and  messy
