Pumpkin Carving!

Saturday evening we had the Broaddus' over for dinner and pumpkin carving. John and I had never carved pumpkins together so it was a fun and new thing for us to do together.
We all spent a while brainstorming what our pumpkin would look like. From the beginning Patrick knew what he wanted. The interlocking BU. Sic 'em!

Cleaning out the pumpkin guts was a different feeling. We didn't have the fancy kits they have out there now, so we used our kitchen utensils. Patrick really liked the pumpkin guts!

John preparing to dig in and get dirty!

Let the carving begin!!

John brought out the power tools. Who needs knives when you've got power tools??

Happy pumpkin face..

Sad pumpkin face..

Lighting the tealights..

The finished product! "4 little pumpkins all in a row.."

Patrick's Interlocking BU pumpkin..

Courtney's classic jack-o-lantern

My "special" pumpkin. (I tried to do a winking pumpkin but that didn't work out too well and his mouth is way too low..)

And John's power tool pumpkin!

We finished off our evening by roasting the pumpkin seeds and watching Patrick and Courtney's movie debut in the documentary, Crawford. It's pretty good! You should see it..I recommend it.
