Pumpkins & Power Tools

by - Saturday, October 31, 2009

What would Halloween be without power tools? A little more trick than treat, I say.

HandyMan and I got our pumpkins carved just in the nick of time before the neighbourhood kiddos came knocking on our door. Okay, so we really didn't carve them exactly. Take a little bit of Martha Stewart, add some Rambling Renovators, and pumpkins end up looking like this:



Add some glow-in-the-dark-mice:



And you get this!



Our front stoop isn't the only thing that was decorated.


(Yes, that is a farmer, his wife, and a very sleepy little chicken).
