In a neighborhood where we lived a few years ago, we had a neighbor who carved the most amazing pumpkins for Halloween. Not only were they intricately carved, but he even thinned out the pumpkin shell until it was translucent. Quite amazing and inspiring for this dad who is used to the triangle-eyes -and-wide-grin variety of jack o'lanterns.
One thing many dads love to do is to carve Halloween pumpkins with the kids. And using a pumpkin carving pattern can make carving an awesome pumpkin pretty easy.
