A little bit more Halloween

In preparing for the Halloween show-and-tell and Benjamin's school, I read that the Irish used to carve turnips; pumpkins didn't come into vogue until Halloween made it across the ocean to America.

I didn't manage it in time for the school presentation, but Frédéric didn't think I could do it, so I had to attempt to prove him wrong.

The grocery store only had teeny turnips, but I did manage it.
The hardest part was massacring the tea light to make it small enough to fit inside.
Noah's jack o'lantern... which I kind of think looks like him.

Benjamin's jack o'lantern
And all three together.
And here is my confession: I'm sort of glad they don't do Halloween here, because that means I don't have to figure out costumes!
