I even impressed myself. 

I'm not sure if it was a mistake or not, but I asked my kids how they wanted their pumpkins carved.

I went online to show them some examples. My son picked a simple pattern with triangle eyes, a similar nose and a wavy mouth. No big deal. I had the kids clean out the insides, and I carved them.

My daughter picked out this incredibly difficult Monster High carving. I told her I'd give it a shot, but no guarantees.

By the time I finished with my son's pumpkin, it was time to go to bed, so I finished hers after she was asleep.

I really impressed myself. it was a big pain in the butt, and it took forever, but I think it came out pretty good.

I stuck the candle in, turned out the lights, and here it is.

It is by far the most difficult I've ever done. Never again! :)
