Pumpkin Party

Hello! Everytime I say I am going to be better about blogging, you should probably not believe me. I think I have some idea in my head of what my blog needs to be like, but really this is supposed to document our newlywed lives as well as update far away family! So, I will try to be better about it.

A couple of weeks ago we had a few people over for a Pumpkin Party! I made pumpkin muffins, everyone brought their favorite fall beer and we carved pumpkins. Interestingly enough, in the almost 5 years that Justin and I have been together, we have never carved a pumpkin together!

Pumpkin carving has changed a lot from when I was little.  It used to be fairly simple and involved some triangles for eyes and a mouth.

Something along the lines of this:


Compare this to a pumpkin I saw on Facebook that was carved into the shape of a baby in the womb. Everyone is carving super elaborate pumpkins these days. Unfortunately, I lack most artistic skills, so Hannah drew a longhorn on our pumpkin and Justin and I carved it. Super original, I know.
