We held out on the pumpkin carving this year until the very last possible day. Somehow I got talked into “helping,” also known as doing, a pattern pumpkin. It actually turned out pretty good looking, and the squirrels are finding our pumpkin is a nasty surprise. Thanks to Matt’s clever coating of habanero pepper oil. Teenagers, same goes to you. . .don’t be touching your eyes after you smash this puppy.
