IGOR the Jack O Lantern

In October we had a booth in the Craft Fair at the Liberty Hill United Methodist Church. They have a large pumpkin patch and lots of kid activity's, so my Mom brought Kallie up to play. The mistake my Mom made was letting Kallie pick out her own pumpkin. Oh she couldn't just have any ole' pumpkin, no it had to be the biggest one there was, so my Dad bought Kallie her pumpkin to which we named Igor. Mind you that when I was growing up my Dad NEVER would have bought us this pumpkin, but for the grand kids....well things are different. And that's okay because Kallie loved this pumpkin. We had to research on line what kind of face Igor was going to have......and she found one so we set out to letting her clean out Igor. Then Daddy helped carve the face and Igor came alive. We set a large candle in him and he shinned so bright...oh Kallie was so proud of him. The day we had to dispose of Igor was not a great one for her, she couldn't understand why Igor was getting soft and stinky. Can't wait to see what our little Princess picks out next year although she is going to have a little brother to contend with.
