Here we are, Halloween weekend and once again it is time for me to post our recently carved jack-O-lantern. This one took me just over an hour and is much simpler than years’ past. I’ve carried the symbolism of acorns and oak leaves throughout the last three years (my last name is derived from the German for “oak”). The acorns seem to be growing in size and importance year by year somehow. I’m satisfied with this year’s pumpkin but I don’t think it’s my favorite of the three. What do you think?

On a side note, my wife called me a GEEK ’cause I went out to the garage to find our tripod. I don’t think I’m a geek just because I don’t want important moments like this to be forever BLURRY. Sheesh! Love you hun. 🙂
