Want to know why it’s mine? Because I did all the work. It started out as a family affair. We all drew a pumpkin face and Delaney chose the winner. Allison won. And then came time to gut and carve the pumpkin. That’s when I went solo.
Jeremy was watching football. Delaney was hiding under the table because she hated the smell. Nate was watching his movie. And Bri and Allison…well, they were being teenagers. So now I have my very own jack o’lantern.
I did one thing different this year. Instead of cutting off the top, I cut a hole out of the bottom and it sits perfectly over a candle. Brilliant, if I do say so. After all, it is my jack o’lantern.
