“Men are like pumpkins. It seems like all the good ones are either taken or they've had everything scraped out of their heads with a spoon.”


TIME:  12:28 PM
PLACE:  The kitchen
SUBJECT:  Pumpkin carving

I completely forgot about carving a pumpkin this year until StellaDella brought it up yesterday.  Bad mom.  So I swung by the farmer’s market this morning and chose my five dollar and ninety-nine cent gourd.  I also picked up two small butternut squashes that we carved as well.  SD was in charge of eviscerating the pumpkin guts and also was the designing artist behind the facial features.  I did the all the actual surgical work.  It was an excellent team effort and we ended up with a lovely carved Jack-O-Lantern that we placed on our front porch to greet the trick-or-treaters this evening.
