Re: To sacrifice a gourd or not?
We get them from the grocery store. Usually 2-3 of them and I carve out the guts, have DD1 pick a pattern for each, and carve them. No simple faces for us. Last year we had a compost so they got plunked in there, but this year we have city run compost so it'll go in there. This year I got some mr potato head like things so DD1 can have her own pumpkin to decorate. I'd like to do more this year, but with velcro baby, I think I might stick to one for DD1 and one for me.
