Eli and Henry are planning on being spiders today, despite Eli’s earnest insistence for the last week or so that he’s going to be a cannonball. (He’s a cannonball every day, regardless.) This past weekend we carved up some jack-o-lanterns. First they each drew faces on to the pumpkins (we didn’t let Zuzu have a chance yet, what with her current inability to hold onto a pen for too long).
In addition to eyes, a nose, and teeth, Henry also gave his pumpkin ears (one of them is off to the left, the other has wandered over to the teeth). There’s also hair above the eyes, though that’s harder to see.
Eli’s pumpkin has two distinct eyes and some hair above them. Harder to discern is the bellybutton (that sort of C-shaped bit near the bottom), and the mouth, which is around the bellybutton.
And here, in an amateurishly blurry photo, are the finished products (Eli’s on the left, Henry’s on the right). Eli insisted on ears once Dave started carving. Eli’s also has hair behind that you can’t see (he drew a round scribble on the back and said he had drawn “the back” which Dave interpreted as hair). I love how Henry’s turned out just as he drew it.
Don’t eat too much candy!
