Hallowed evening

OK, so it’s Hallowed ‘een, or more modernly, Halloween, but that’s just a recent invention of the last 100 years or so. As Chaucer said, “men evere seeke newfangle.”

In any case, here are the artistic efforts of the Koetsier household this trick-or-treat season. (More accurately, that would be the art of one Teresa Koetsier ….)

Teresa tells me that the art was NOT all hers. While she did do the carving, she did it (more or less) according to the kids’ own drawings … so Aidan, Ethan, and Gabrielle all had a hand in their pumpkins.
