Getting into the festivities!

Thanks to Ben and Amy, Jean and I got into pumpkin carving! I had been thinking about doing it, but life kept happening and we never got around to it, I like to prefer to avoid calling it lazy...Anyway, they had us over for a delicious breakfast dinner (my fave!) and carving.
I think this was my first time actually involved in the carving of pumpkins...yep, I am 26. I have helped clean out pumpkins, but can't remember ever taking a knife to one. Don't judge me!
Anyway, Jean and I picked the happy looking pattern (it looked the least initmidating) and Emma, a pro, coached me through the carving and made it look great!

super fun! Has Jean ever carved pumpkins? Did you save the pumpkin seeds for toasting?

Ben said...

Thanks for joining us, we find it's always more fun to carve with someone else.
