First things first. Always use power tools if the opportunity presents itself. So much more fun.

Second, I’m pretty sure I actually carved a spaghetti squash this year instead of a pumpkin. In all my many years of carving pumpkins, I have never carved a pumpkin like this. Spaghetti I tell you. Is this the variety you get when you buy a four dollar pumpkin at the grocery store weeks in advance? Oh well, I’m still very pleased with the end result. And wouldn’t it be sweet if my “stars” were in the shape of a constellation?
