I procrastinated on finishing Laurel's costume so I did not begin carving this year's pumpkins until Halloween evening.

Not sure of how far I was going to get in one evening, Vogon cleaned two for me and chunked up the third to roast for puree, which is now processed, packed and frozen. My wrist started twinging about half an hour ago, so I have one pumpkin done (Domo-kun), one underway (based on a photo of an 82nd Airborne fun jump at a 2006 airshow), and one or more in the pipeline after we go buy a couple of 2/$5 pumpkins later today.

I'll post photos of all the finished pieces to Flickr sometime Saturday night or Sunday, as well as a photo of Laurel in her costume (she went trick-or-treating without the makeup and hair color, and we'll just do that for photos), but I will leave you with a tease of the in-progress pumpkin:

Thank you! I had a bunch of idea photos that I ran by Vogon and he liked the ones that emphasized the up-chute view and were clearly fun jumps.

I still have to get a good finished shot of that pumpkin and do a quick mostly-Dremel job on the post-holiday cheap pumpkins, but I'm taking a break now to watch the Outrageous Pumpkins episode of Food Network Challenge. The sculpted round is fascinating!
