Rats and Pumpkins

This year, I thought I would try to carve a rat pumpkin. I found an idea online for a pumpkin with two rats, but decided to only carve one rat and put a piece of cheese next to him instead. I am pretty happy with how it turned out.

I have noticed a trend in pumpkins is to carve some of the pumpkin's outer part away, so to create another color when it is lit up. So I tried that method on the cheese. Below is my pumpkin with the light in it.

After lighting the pumpkin and taking some pictures, I let the boys investigate it. They wanted nothing to do with the pumpkin when it was on the table, but when I put it on the floor, they felt safe enough to take a look.

Scout investigating. "What is it?"

After awhile, they figured out they could eat the pumpkin! Here is Smoky taking a piece of the "cheese."

Yeah. Nice work. That's great! I really like the photo in the dark with the candle lit.
