This year was, technically, Cole's first year carving out his own pumpkin. In the past he has had a bit of help in both the design and the carving process. This year, with Mom and Dad standing by, he did it himself- and he did a great job!
I'm not surprised that he chose a Bionicle mask as his subject matter for carving- it's his thing.
He was both grossed out and fascinated by what he found inside the pumpkin.
He was very careful and diligent in his cutting.
Although these pictures don't show all that he did, he actually spent a lot of time cutting the surface of the pumpkin to make some of the shaded parts you see in the mask.
Great job Buddy!
