Well H20 has to start somewhere... What an utterly awful year so far, and while we have been fortunate enough not to have lost anyone to Covid, I know that a lot of other folks have not been as fortunate, and my thoughts are with those that have lost loved ones this year. I lost my mother this year in early July and all in all I'll be glad when 2020 is behind us all and there is more light at end of the tunnel hopefully in 2021.

Anyway, enough of the doom and gloom, it will be Halloween soon enough!!

Started to get some pumpkins for this year; and have been thinking of getting a few more, if I can get close to 30 then I'll consider that a success.

I've had no luck finding monster sized 'kins this year, they have all been rather standard or substandard sizes so far.

Raw material for Halloween 2020

No final thoughts on designs yet for this year, I'll put an update up once I've had a chance to review designs etc., although I was planning on doing some Plants vs. Zombie patterns this year for my youngest....

I wish everyone a great build up to Halloween this year, and can't wait to start carving soon enough, thankfully I've booked time off from work for the 2 days before Halloween so I should have plenty of carving time available.

2:30am Group photo....off to bed, time to enjoy Halloween proper tomorrow!
The kids (13 & 7) they did great on the carving, and we managed this in 2 days, I guess if we want to do more next year, I'll need to take more time off work!

Happy Halloween everyone, and praise and hugs go to Ryan of course, Halloween just wouldn't be the same without his creativity!
