And my tools (little pumpkin saws) all broke. That's actually not a surprise, because they were probably ten years old. I had to finish with a Remington no. 6 knife that I picked up at the Kittery Trading Post. Sharp and strong, but the 6" blade wasn't made for fine pumpkin work.
It was a little sad, too - the Boys didn't want to carve pumpkins with me like we always do. I guess they're too grown up for that sort of thing. I've had this time with them for 15 years or so, and I'll dearly miss it if it's gone.
