All summer we'd almost forgotten about the giant pumpkin vine growing behind the rows of corn, so it was a surprise when this giant showed up! At about a foot and a half in diameter it really is a giant. Such an impressive pumpkin couldn't be wasted on a regular jack-o-lantern face . . . .

A few hours and a high-powered light later (the walls are so thick that a candle wouldn't do the trick!) the dragon was ready to guard our front door.
There's another pumpkin waiting in the kitchen . . . I think Cinderella's carriage might be on its way.
