Pumpkin Carving

Sara and I decided to have a little Sunday funday and had a whole fun evening planned. We began our funday with a bottle of vino, then lit Sara fireplace candle (has a special wick to make it sound like a fireplace with real wood burning, smelled like cinnamon) next we baked some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.

After we decided on what we were going to carve our pumpkins we put on The Nightmare Before Christmas (one of my fave movies ever) and began our carving adventure. Pumpkin carving is way harder than I thought, the next day I even had a blister! I decided to carve some witches shoes inspired by my friend Kim and Sara made a cute little kitty cat. After we were finished we baked the pumpkin seeds with salt and garlic, made some tea and re-watched the movie since we didn't really pay attention to it whilst carving. Fantastic Sunday Funday!

It is now Thursday and I think I already have to throw my pumpkin out. It's already getting gross, boooooo :( I thought it would last longer. Oh well, was fun while it lasted.
