Just had to show you! These are our little homegrown ones


The kids both "designed" their own (Matt and I carved). Here's Erin's (we jokingly put our smallest one in its mouth)


And Patrick's


And Matt's


And them lit


If I have time I'll paint faces on the little ones.

Nicole: Turnip? Is that a tradition from somewhere?

Kristy: That pumpkin is great! So up Patrick's alley. Maybe next year.

Great pumpkins and turnip ladies!!

We usually paint our pumpkins. We bought pumpkins but didn't get time to paint them this year. Kendra did decorate one for the school pumpkin decorating contest though. She painted the pumpkin red and made a caterpillar out of green fuzzy balls and foam. It was the very hungry caterpillar eating through the red apple. I'll try and upload pics later today.

According to what I had heard they tradition started with turnips.

The Jack-o-lantern custom probably comes from Irish folklore. As the tale is told, a man named Jack, who was notorious as a drunkard and trickster, tricked Satan into climbing a tree. Jack then carved an image of a cross in the tree's trunk, trapping the devil up the tree. Jack made a deal with the devil that, if he would never tempt him again, he would promise to let him down the tree.

According to the folk tale, after Jack died, he was denied entrance to Heaven because of his evil ways, but he was also denied access to Hell because he had tricked the devil. Instead, the devil gave him a single ember to light his way through the frigid darkness. The ember was placed inside a hollowed-out turnip to keep it glowing longer.

The Irish used turnips as their "Jack's lanterns" originally. But when the immigrants came to America, they turned to hollowed-out pumpkins lit with an ember
