Monday evening, I met some friends from church to carve pumpkins for Halloween. Ivan provided us with some yummy pumpkin-themed baked goods. You may note that Josh, Ivan, and I all embraced our inner nerd. Josh’s pumpkin has laboratory flasks and molecules, Ivan’s is the Hoover Dam (he’s an engineer), and mine has a roll of film.
Below are images of our snacks, our carving, and our pumpkins! When I took mine home and lit it after carving the backside, I found that it projected the images onto surfaces!
I want to try roasting seeds this year! (Ivan was kind enough to add some of his seeds to my stash.)
Pumpkin insides are kinda slimy…
Yep, it is the Hoover Dam.
Josh was really working hard on his design.
Here is mine! Carved it with a big kitchen knife… slowly, but surely.
I am not really sure how to photograph illuminated pumpkins… kitty approves either way.
