Painted pumpkin

Yes it is that time of year again.

But something new. For all the years I had a jack-o-lantern we carved a face and then lit a candle inside. This face is cute but it somehow seems to be a cheat. No personal creativity here. Just a silk screen or some kind of stencil. Why bother with a real pumpkin?

I remember the fun of cutting the top out and digging out the creepy gooey seeds. Then carving triangles for eyes and nose, and a smile with three teeth.
