After spending the entire day cleaning the apartment top to bottom what do you think we decided to do? Obviously, we thought the best idea would be to perform one of the messiest of all holiday traditions: carving the pumpkin (at 11:30 pm no less). As we were drawing the design onto our pumpkin I had a flashback to the layer upon layer of newspaper that covered our floor every year as pumpkins were carved and I began to panic.
Rest assured, we miraculously managed to keep the pumpkin off the floor; notice the meticulous bowl of pumpkin shavings.
We carved our version of Jack from the Nightmare Before Christmas while listening to the soundtrack.
