Bucktoothed Jack

It is a tradition this time of year to carve a pumpkin and set it on your front step to mark Halloween. I would have to say that we really don't celebrate this holiday in the fullest sense, but we do let the kids dress as something fun and go trick-or-treating. No scary costumes here although my daughter once had me make her a disco Barbie costume and then she actually wore it...THAT was scary! So this year, the kids butchered carved out this funny looking Jack-o-lantern as our contribution to Halloween festivities and it currently resides on our front porch, complete with tealight for lighting at night. I love how they gave him buckteeth!

You're well ahead with your Hallow'een preparations! I think this year we may manage an uncarved pumpkin at most...
