Pumpkin Carving and Cook Out and We've been BOO,ed

We've been BOO'ed by Rambling Goat Chick. Yikes!! Blogging has been so fun--getting to "know" some of you girls!




On my birthday (again, thank you for all of the birthday wishes), we did our annual pumpkin carving.

Here is my resident pumpkin gutter. She has loved this job since she was a toddler.



Ewwww! Pumpkin guts!!


Ian is glad to take the lid off, but he leaves the guts to Chloe.



I think the best part of pumpkin carving is getting the seeds out for roasting.
If you haven't ever roasted the seeds, you have missed out. Oh yum!
Here are some instructions. I usually just use canola oil instead of butter.

We added s'mores and hot chocolate to the party. It was a fun filled evening of family togetherness.

If you like s'mores and want something to carry with you to a party, take a look at these over at Daisy Cottage. Yum!

Happy Thursday.
