This poor pumpkin didn’t stand a chance. The conspiracy began when Papa snatched this poor guy right off the street and drug him back to our house.
He carefully sliced a hole in the top of his noggin while Laylee sat heartlessly drawing plans for his new brainless face.
Magoo looked on as papa extracted all the
grey er orange matter from the cranial cavity, a very seedy affair.
And he thinks it’s funny.
Laylee explained her detailed schematics to Papa.
“I want the pumpkin to have a scary face like this.”
With the brains extracted and the tools assembled, it was time to get down to the serious work. Scalpel!
Eyebrows are a pumpkinic must.
Grammy couldn’t resist rubbing our own fuzzy little pumpkin head.
Some dental cleanup work was needed. Anyone have some cinnamon floss we could borrow? This knife is a little inprecise.
And a group photo. It’s hard to tell them apart with identical faces like that.
That was so much fun! I’m so glad we were there to help with the surgical procedure. They are all truly terrifying…except maybe Magoo, who just can’t seem to do mean, no matter how hard he tries. Happy Halloween!
Oh that’s a great pumpkin!! Papa makes a great surgeon!
We opted for the “Mr. Potatohead” pumkins this year. No mess!!
Ahhh!!! Sorry – the last one frightened me a bit too much. That’s a dandy for the big parade tonight!
That is a FANTASTIC looking jack-o-lantern.
Now THAT’S a great pumpkin!
Sadly I forgot about the Mr. Potato Head pumpkin stuff until I read Sherry’s comment. Meant to buy that this year. My drawing skills leave a bit to be desired. Have you ever read xkcd.com? I can’t draw that well. It’s sad.
In other words, jealous of the fantabulous jack ‘o lantern skills here!

Mad scientists on the loose! Bar the windows! Lock the doors! Call out the dogs!
Oops. Scratch that last part. The dogs want to eat the victim. Whose side are they on anyway?
