Around here Daddy does the annual carving of the pumpkin event. It all started in the first year of our marriage where he came home one afternoon to me just about to take a knife to a pumpkin. Horrified at how I was holding the knife he quickly took it out of my hand and scolded me like a five year old (he likes doing that, he scolds, I beat a subject to death, we are paired in our bad habits). He then said those words I am sure he regrets, "from now on I will do all the carving of pumpkins in this household". But seriously he loves doing it, although the children's requests are getting harder and harder to create.
