Tux Pumpkin

My wife put me and the twins in charge of carving the pumpkin. The boys are just about 18 months now, so they can't help much. I decided to carve Tux on the pumpkin.

EDIT: The stencil link in the below paragraph is out of date. See this blog post for an update (http://penguingeek.blogspot.com/2011/10/tux-pumpkin-update.html).

This is my first Halloween doing anything like this to a pumpkin. I am used to just cutting out eyes and a goofy-toothed mouth with my sheetrock saw. I found a nice pattern here. The printed size was a little too big, so I reduced the print to 70%. I probably could have gotten away with 75%, but oh well. So after a few hours of work, this is what I came up with:




Happy Halloween!
