Happy Halloween. Well, not only am I out of Halloween carving pics, but I’m starting a new series. I guess when Halloween is over, people go nuts for the Christmas holiday season.

This is the last installment of ‘Carving Saint Nicolas’ and exactly two months before Christmas. But then, he is Saint Nicolas which means he should be ready for Saint Nicolas Day 12/6/12. Don’t forget to leave your shoes out the night before so he can fill it with treats (except for those who were naughty!)

Ok, ok, we know that Santa is hard at work so let’s get back to Halloween. This ghostly pair sprang to life from small pieces of scrap wood destined for the fire. I guess they would have no part of that.

Rest time before the big night. I guess one can sleep as long as he wants when he has others doing all the work. But I won’t say anything about that.
