We use a dry eraser marker to sketch out the face of the pumpkin. After everything was cut out, a wet paper towel wiped away all the marker and no lines were showing on the face.
Um, duh. Why didn't we all think of this years ago?
Speaking of pumpkin carving, I've noticed that a few stores have already put their Halloween supplies on sale. If you've still got a pumpkin or two to carve, those cheap sets of pumpkin carving tools make short work of the job, especially if kids will be doing some of the carving.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
