Every year we have a pumpkin carving party down at the Spinster’s house. We carve pumpkins and eat all kinds of really-bad-for-us treats, then swear we’re gonna puke for about 30 minutes or so afterward. It’s fun.
This year was another huge success. Well for everyone but me that is. My pumpkin turned out horribly. And not horrible in a good, scary, Halloween-horrible kinda way. Just the regular kind of horrible. The bad kind.
We had a table full of delectable goodies and some scary music in the background to set the mood.
We had a cute carving table all ready to go.
Nanner decided to paint her pumpkin this year.
Katie, being the little perfectionist that she is, was very meticulous with hers. I thought we were going to be there all night waiting on her to finish.
We were also going to have a weenie roast, but alas it rained all stinkin’ night. But did that stop us from roasting weenies? Heck no! We just improvised.
See? Roasted weenie perfection! Just look at that satisfied customer. I don’t know how you guys like you’re roasted weenies, but ’round these parts, we like ’em burnt!
We even had s’mores too! So what if they were microwaved? Did we care? Heck no!
It was so much fun, even if my pumpkin fell apart and now just looks like a pumpkin with a huge gaping hole in the middle of it. I kept leaning my head from side to side, hoping against hope that at the right angle it would look like something. Anything! But nope, it’s just a big hole in a pumpkin. It’s the one there on the end that looks like nothing…yeah, as if you couldn’t tell which one it was. It was supposed to be a cat and a moon. 😦
Sorry. I just wanted to put that picture on here and I didn’t know what to say about it…
Here they are all together. Such a cute little Jack-o-lantern family…well, all except for that ugly one on the end.
We ended the evening with none other than a viewing of the classic “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”. It was a perfect punkin carving night…even if it did rain.
Thanks Spinster, it was a blast as usual!
