Our Carving Party

Hey Blog Reading Friends,  

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!  :)

My very clever and crafty friend, DeeAnna, fixed up this 2 liter.  Isn't it cute??

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!
