You ruined Halloween, Charlie Brown!

So, if you are friends with me on Facebook and you happened to see my status on Sunday, you already know that we had a minor "incident" involving Husband's jack-o-lantern. We carved our pumpkins on Saturday and then, because our kitchen is rather small and space is limited, I decided to keep both pumpkins on a kitchen chair so they wouldn't be in the way. That night before bed, I thought it would be a good idea to move the pumpkins to the floor so they wouldn't get knocked off the chair. Well, in my attempt to move my pumpkin to the floor, I knocked the chair, and you guessed it, off fell Husband's pumpkin. Sigh. Try as I may, I could not get the pumpkin back together. It was late, and I was annoyed so I just left it. On Sunday I had the genius idea to use my glue gun to try and fix the pumpkin. I say "genius" idea because it worked! Who knew that hot glue would adhere to the inside of a pumpkin? If you ever find yourself in the unfortunate position of ruining a loved one's jack-o-lantern, just pull out your glue gun! You're welcome!

Husband's pumpkin after the "incident"

All glued up! If you look closely you can see some of the glue!

My pumpkin

Husband's pumpkin all lit up. It lost a tail in transition from the kitchen to the front porch, but overall I think the glue held up well. Also, you may notice that there is a light in the pumpkin rather than a candle. I was afraid the candle would melt the glue and destroy what was left of Husband's hard work!
