Pumpkin Party



Yesterday was our annual carving party at my brother's house. Jimmy and Melissa got each of us a pumpkin and were nice enough to "gut" each pumpkin and have it ready to carve! Jimmy made his traditional chicken fajitas and Melissa made her witches brew (punch) and graveyard (chocolate & Oreo dirt) cake. Yum!

Our pumpkins turned out pretty good this year! Mom's owl and Spencer's crazy frog has plastic eyes that pop into the design-- they look really cool! The rest of us picked fairly easy designs this year. We wussed out. haha!

Oh I love the photos of the boys laughing! Oh I sure wish we could crave our pumpkins outside and with shorts on. It is so cold here today!

I have to say-- Spencer's crazy frog pumpkin is my favorite! That is way cool! They all look great, though. I love all of your family traditions.
That picture of Spencer and IV looking at each other and laughing is the best! They are so cute.

"Fairly easy" designs!? What-evah. We're lucky if ours even gets a couple triangle eyes cut out of them. I stink at carving.
