Project "Acquire a Real Pumpkin" was a critical success, thanks to John's quick thinking in detouring to a Winn Dixie (because Publix was closed) to find a certain cider (which they didn't have) and overall tolerance of my squealing like a toddler and insisting we get "this one, 'cuz it speaks to me." (I meant metaphorically.)
And now... [rubbing hands together] ...I'll just surf the 'net for a while to figure out what I'm going to carve.
Care to join me? :D
See, I have all these great links and photos that you guys have been sending in, and naturally I can't choose what I'm going to do until I explore ALL of them.
First, I should mention that Pumpkin Wizard has a great tutorial on how to turn a photograph into a pumpkin template. Although I don't really have a photo I want to carve, so... Next!
I can't remember who the first person was to send me the link to 100+ Creative Pumpkin Carving Ideas, but naturally this was the one that caught my eye:
Although he's not technically carved. Heh.
The created their own pumpkin Sesame Street!
Again, not carved (well, mostly not carved) but I'm amazed at how much these look like the characters:
I think Gonzo is my favorite:
All he needs is a tiny squash Camilla-the-chicken.
And, naturally, Catherine and her cronies had to dress up to match their display:
EPIC, I tell you. EPIC.
Ok, getting back to the pumpkins...
How amazing is the difference when the lights go out?! So cool.
And I love the Jack Skellington that Barbara did:
She tells me you should carve him from a white pumpkin, too, for extra authenticity. Brilliant.
Rissykay99's "Vampire Cupcake" is hilarious and adorable:
And here's an actual carved Stay Puft by Elise:
A strong contender for my pumpkin, this.
By Mike Laughead
I am seriously tempted to do this one.
(John is a contender for World's Biggest Potter Fan.)
Darla also linked me to this awesome Mario:

Ruth found this greatness:
Hint: That's no moon.
It looks like porcelain!
Wow. Yeah, I don't think my carves are going to be this good quite yet. :)
D'awwwwww. I love it!
Most excellent, this is.
This makes me gleeful in ways I can't even describe.
Stay tuned for updates on my impending pumpkin adventures. ("John? Where's the reciprocating saw?") Hee. Ahee. Hee.
