will someone buy me a real lighter?

Last night, the pumpkin carving extravaganza began before I even got home… as Mr. M had already tried out the pumpkin carving knifes and gotten to work on his coyotes. Then, he quickly whipped out his toothy grinning pumpking and said, “Ok… your turn!”  After I finished up with dinner, I settled on trying to carve some intricate designs from I settled on a ‘happy’ Jack Skellington and the other awesome smiling guy on the right. And now my right arm doesn’t even want to move the mouse this morning. I can’t wait to see them lit up… but then again… that requires a flame… and we’re severely lacking any sort of lighter. Oh well.

    Love it! I can’t remember the last time I carved a pumpkin… no time anymore. :( I loved it back in the day when I didn’t work 100 hour weeks, though! Now I am all nostalgic…
