Halloween: Carving pumpkins

On Saturday night, after Patsy's party, Rachel & I met up with some of the Chinese folks to carve pumpkins, as they hadn't ever done that before. We cooked pizza for dinner and had leftover candy from Patsy's party and had a lovely time carving pumpkins. I carved a pumpkin - AND a turnip, as that is the traditional Scottish thing to do.
Scooping out our pumpkins!

Ooh! Lovely pumpkins (and one turnip!)
