Getting ready for Halloween

I had to carve a pumpkin for CotP's Samhein celebration this Friday, and I decided to get overly ambitious and do two of them using the nifty pattern books that I picked up on clearance last year. The first one has carvings on the back too, specifically to generate a cool shadow.





Of course, I don't think I've actually carved a pumpkin since high school, maybe even junior high... And back then I didn't have to deal with cleaning out the pumpkin. That was a job for mom & dad, and I just had to carve.
I just have one thing to say about cleaning out pumpkin guts:
EWWWW!

I was so squicked out by it that I grabbed some rubber gloves to wear so I wouldn't have to actually touch it! But once they were gutted the carving wasn't so bad. I was actually impressed with how they came out, so I think I will enter one in the carving contest at work. Which of the two should I enter?
