More Jack'o'lantern pictures

As you'll see, once April returned the day after we carved the zapallo jack-o'-lantern, it was no longer the scariest looking thing on the porch.



(Here is the jack-o'-lantern by itself.)



(Then April asked the kids to make faces.)




(They really understood making faces once they saw the picture of my face.)





(Then April made faces with the kids, but the parents started to join in too.)



(So April got a couple of the moms to make bruja (witch) faces, and they quite literaly let their hair down....)


It definately seems we started something they'll continue after we leave. And they probably won't grow zapallo just to carve faces either; Maria made zapallo bread with the jack-o'-lantern the next day, and it was quite yummy.
