Four and half hours, twelve bucks, and two small cuts later...

Ryan and I carved pumpkins last night and we decided to give the Obama-themed templates floating around on the web a try.

I won't lie to you, this project took much longer than planned and part way through after struggling with the templates and breaking the blade off the knife in the pumpkin carving kit, I almost called it quits.

After stomping around a bit and starting a blog post about how disasterous the experience had been I decided to salvage the time and money that we'd invested into to the project and come out with something to stick a candle in on Halloween night.

All in all, I think the pumpkins turned out pretty darn good, especially when it is dark! :)
