pumpkin carving!

this is totally belated, but i wanted to post a few pictures from our pumpkin carving party a few weeks ago.  unfortunately really hard life stuff came up and has delayed me, but better late than never!

we must have had at least 20 pumpkins, if not more.  everyone went to town.  we had patterns, but by the time i started mine, i didn't like any of the patterns left.  i wasn't in the mood to do spooky so i freehanded a flower.  i took my work very seriously, as you can see.

to top off things, several of us made harvest-y treats.  i am very pleased with what i made, a little idea from a kids' activity book.  these mini "jack-o-lanterns" were actually hollowed out oranges that had pumpkin pie filling baked in them.  the faces were made possible by good ole sharpie and voila!  cute little jack-o-lantern pumpkin treats!  easy and fun!  a two year old helped me make them!

How cute! You are so creative-loved the flower!!
(By the way we still need to get together for a quilting weekend-I can do some piecing for you and you can do some quilting for me!!)

I just want to say that your pumpkin flower is gorgeous! Our pumpkin is still sitting, uncarved, on the front porch! Canaan drew a pattern on a piece of paper, taped it to the front, and that is how it has stayed!
Yours is just beautiful!
