We carved a little early this year since it was the only day we could all get together. This is always a good time and everyone seems to enjoy it – with the exception of the 12-year-old niece, who gets bored. Even my dad seems to really like it, which is a little surprising to me, but I’m glad.
I got my garden cleaned up for fall with all the annuals pulled out and lots of pumpkins:
It was kind of a rainy night, but fun nonetheless. Pumpkins ready to go!
I didn’t take any pictures of food, but we just did a finger food dinner and still managed to sit at the table with the pumpkins on it LOL!
Usually I do 2 pumpkins, but I am going to wait until Friday to do the second one so it is fresher.
One by one we lined them up on the stairs inside as they got finished.
You can see where we stopped removing wallpaper here LOL! Winter project…sigh...
I still wanted to see them outside, though. We put them outside under the awning over the garage so they would stay dry:
If you don’t know, an easy way to keep a pumpkin fresh if the weather is warm or you carve early is to either put vaseline around the cut parts or to keep the pumpkin in a bucket of water. I do the water thing and it works great.
Did you know today is National Cat Day? I mentioned that to John and he said every day was cat day 😀 Here is our little queen on her chaise:
She’s giving me the look here!
Today’s pink item – soap colorant! This is pink mica. Not as bad as getting glitter everywhere, but still makes a mess.
