I really didn't mean to go a whole week without posting. I'm not even sure how it happened! Last week got lost in a party, a soccer tournament, and lots of time spent with friends, oh, and Halloween. Before I knew it, it was the start of a new week and time to get my act together once again.
Here are some pictures from our carving party. I really wish I had gotten these posted sooner but like I said...
The only thing I don't have a picture of are the invitations we made. (I always forget to snap a picture of something!) We folded orange construction paper in half and cut out the shape of a pumpkin. We cut out the eyes and nose and mouth like a traditional jack-o-lantern and used black sharpie to write all the party details, the most important of those being B.Y.O.P. (bring your own pumpkin).
Our menu consisted of a big pot of chili, hot-dogs my honey cooked on the grill, chips, and s'mores. It was yummy! Everyone pitched in and brought something and it was almost no work for me. Yay! :)

You cannot beat Hobby Lobby for cute tableware!
It was a super fun night and I'm pretty sure everyone had a great time.
Time is marching on (as it has a habit of doing) and now it is time to start getting ready for Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving and I can't wait!
The next post I have scheduled is about raising thankful kids. Hopefully I will get that finished up today or tomorrow. Stay tuned!
