Pumpkin carving is a favorite tradition at our house. Dad is the designated carver, so he sets the rules, which can pretty much be summed up as "keep it simple." I am always impressed by the incredible artwork that some people are able to put on a pumpkin. We don't even try. It's the same every year: two eyes, a nose and a goofy grin with maybe a tooth, but we have a blast anyway.
Once the pumpkin was done, we toasted the seeds, made caramel apples and watched the "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." Good times.
