Our last year's pumpkin was based on the story of Meg and Mog, this year I decided to pick a little skeleton from Funnybones as my inspiration.
Sasha loves Funnybones, it appeals to his sense of humour and the appreciation of the macabre. We'd sit on the bed, I would read him a story and he'd listen and look at the quirky illustrations.
I was also very impressed when at the latest parental meeting the teachers mentioned that not only he assembled the image of the skeleton from many pieces, but also added all the correct names for the parts of the skeleton.
So, I thought it would amuse him and Eddie if I carved a little skeleton on our Hallowe'en pumpkin.
We have a lovely little inglenook in the old fireplace in the dining room, and it is a perfect setting for our pumpkin.
