Jack-O-Lanterns and Long Exposure Fun

Last night we carved our pumpkins! First the first time ever, I couldn't think of a face to carve - I attribute it to the fact that I haven't been running on all cylinders this week. I asked Clark for some help with ideas and he pointed out a little bat potholder that we have. It's got a cute and silly little bat face on it, so I thought it was a great idea. Well, it turned out looking a little stupid on a pumpkin, but that's ok, we had a good time together. Clark's pumpkin looks great! It was so cool to see how he's come around. Last year, he couldn't care less about carving pumpkins, and actually just thought it was gross. He still thinks it's gross (hence me scooping his pumpkin for him), but he made a good effort this year and it paid off. I'm disappointed with mine, but at least if some punk kid kicks it in tonight, I won't be too upset. After we finished, we fooled around with some long exposures on my camera. Enjoy the pictures!
