Fabulous news:  I am typing with all ten fingers! 

Our pumpkin from Sweet Berry Farm succumbed to my novice carving attempts, and we emerged with a semblance of a pirate ship. 

Oscar and Edgar couldn’t have been more pleased with–or more curious about–the process on Thursday night.  Then, Don and Oscar carefully carried the pumpkin into school on Friday, and it made it safely to the display for Saturday night.  We waited in line for about twenty minutes, searched for Oscar’s pumpkin for probably another thirty, and ultimately spent over an hour outside on a 45-degree evening (which feels very cold right now, actually).  But in the end we were able to declare Oscar’s pumpkin “the best pumpkin in the whole display”!  And that was worth every shiver and goosebump!
