Rhonda, this one's for you. :)
Last week I was actually social. (Disregard the fact that I was the only one home and therefore lonely for most of the week--that had absolutely nothing to do with it. *ahem*) One of my outings involved my ward FHE and pumpkins. Yay pumpkins! I will admit, we cheated and used stencils, but we were not feeling creative enough to actually draw out faces. Ha--I tried once (on a paper towel, not the pumpkin) and it looked pretty bad. Yeah, anyways...picture time!
Here's the pumpkin Brad and I carved:
Rhonda, Landon, and Devin* carved another one:
|This is Rhonda's worried face, in case you couldn't tell--the only thing between her fingers and the carving knife is a section of pumpkin. Carve carefully, Landon, carve carefully.|
|Note the beautiful eyes, freehanded by Landon.|
Since we aren't allowed to have fire in the church, we headed over to Landon's house afterward and borrowed some candles. Here they are all lit up:
|Don't they look awesome?|
This was the first year that I haven't carved my "own" pumpkin at home, and this one got moldy before Halloween night, so we didn't even have a pumpkin on our wall outside. Man...the parents and I are getting lame in our old age. But hey, only 100 days until Zachy gets home! Yay!
Hope you all had a fun Halloween!
