Picked up a few more pumpkins yesterday. My soft goal is 200 for next year, but I'm not going to kill myself like I did this year. If I carve 30 this year, I will be happy. I'm starting to run into storage issues in my home.

Wow! This is amazing work! Such creativity and clever use of materials. Foam adhesive for the icing, right? I would have messed that up from the start.
