Boo!


We carved the pumpkins for Halloween at our place yesterday. On display above are the Jack O'Lanterns carved by our group (Sundar was at the party too but had to leave before the photosession. His "Harry Potter" Jack O'Lantern can be seen here).

The "classic" Jack O'Lantern in the middle is the one carved by my wife, definitely the more artistic and less clumsy one among the two of us :-)

For a quick comparison, here are the carvings we made last year... Sure looks like we've become a more adventurous(and talented) set of carvers :-)


This Halloween, Kavya's gonna be a princess(Sleeping Beauty) while Karthik's gonna be a pumpkin. Can't wait to go trick-or-treating with them tomorrow night...

Happy Halloween!

Happy Diwali to all.

Wow! The pumpkins look so intricate and nice. Use any special tools for the witch, cat, spider etc?

I only tried this once years back, and mine was so pathetic in comparison.
