Maximus was excited about carving a face into a pumpkin (obviously, something he was not allowed to do, but watched instead). He helped to take the flesh and the seeds out and said “Mummy, you can put the seeds in your salad!”.
Battery operated tea lights were used for safety, which he put into the pumpkin himself, as well as placing the ‘top’ on to complete the look. The main lights were turned off so the pumpkin head would glow. He was very pleased with the result – so much so, he posed with it later on his lap and gave it the name ‘Bobby’.
