Last week the critters received an invitation to a pumpkin carving party! They were beside themselves with anticipation all week - they spent hours discussing the design of the pumpkin, how big it should be, what kind of pumpkin they wanted to carve and whether they should have one each or do one together. After much research and debate, they decided on a traditional big orange pumpkin, and seeing as it was the same size as the three of them combined, they thought it best to carve it together.
Edmund the yeti drew on the design which somehow ended up looking more like Edmund than the others had anticipated, but they were still pretty impressed with it so decided to keep quiet on this point.
Then it was up to Clifford the giraffe and Marvin the turtle to start carving! The pumpkin was very hard, but Clifford and Marvin are both extremely strong so it wasn't a problem for them.
Edmund scraped out the guts of the pumpkin which he enjoyed immensely.
Then they all joined in to carve the face - they discovered carving circles is rather challenging.
Then their pumpkin was finished!!! It definitely needed a name. Marvin came up with Albert Fitzwilliam-Smythe and it was agreed that it was a very fitting name indeed.
Here are some of the other pumpkins by the talented party-goers. Also, check out Who Does the Dishes, an awesome blog by photographer Lucy Leonardi who captured the evening and also shares an amazing pumpkin pie recipe!
