With the firefighter costume assembled weeks ago and the excitement of Senator Obama's visit waning, it was time to carve the mega-pumpkin from the Golden Kernel in Grottoes.
Here is Andrew scooping out the 47.75 pounds of innards from this noble plant.
While Mommy did the bulk of the carving, Andrew ran to his kitchen to get a knife. This is the first year he has been an active participant in the process and he seemed to enjoy it.
Here is the finished product on the front porch table ... PRETTY SPOOKY!
This is Lion, Andrew's best friend, and he approved this message.
