{Pumpkin Carving}

Hallow's Eve is almost here, and with that brings so much excitement for the holiday season all together!  There is also an intense craving to throw a party with mummy toes, dried scabs, and kitty litter casserole. That will have to wait until next year, unless I plan it tonight and throw the party Monday between a birthday celebration, Preschool parade and Trick-or-Treating.
Luckily people are more on top of it than me and we were able to enjoy friends company at a pumpkin carving party.  
Warm soups satisfied our stomachs, along with homemade pumpkin roll.  The children ransacked the house, while the adults focused their attention on pumpkin carving.

We forgot one of the handiest tools to carve pumpkins that we learned about a few years ago, a canning lid.  The flat disc scrapes out those pumpkin guts with ease, and makes cleaning out the pumpkin a little more enjoyable.   It has revolutionized our carving days!

We went home with some very spooky pumpkins, the cat's mouth really creeps me out.
Have a festive weekend!!
