McKayla waiting her turn to carve.
Matilda ready to dig in!
After realizing that Ned wouldn't be able to have time to carve pumpkins with them this year McKayla and Matilda decided to have everyone come to the facility to carve pumpkins together.
Suzie found a new technique, from "good ol' Martha Stewart", to cut off the BOTTOM of the pumpkin instead of the top. It helps in keeping the bottom from rotting and is MUCH easier to deal with the candle!
So, this afternoon Will, Ryan, and I (Taylor's still in Florida) headed up to West Richland with food to bbq and pumpkins to carve. McKayla and Matilda greeted us with smiles on as they were so excited for the party to happen!
We had great food, conversation, wine, and
Anyone who knows me knows I HATE HALLOWEEN!!!!!! I can not tell you why I hate it...I just do. It might have something to do with I HATE being scared though!!!! So, I put on a happy face and tried to look like I was ready for a good time...I (as well as everyone else) had a wonderful time!
The "free handed" R2-D2!
The painstakingly UGLY wolf!
After I was finished with his pumpkin I called him over and he was much more impressed with his dad's pumpkin which Will did free handed! He made R2-D2! I could have killed them both. There I sat working on a massively complicated ugly wolf and Will cut out R2-D2 without hardly blinking.
The finished products lit up. The pic really doesn't do them justice!
They both did turn out pretty neat!
Matilda's already looking ahead to the next party...
All in all, we had a great day with friends and family. As we were getting ready to leave Matilda said to her dad Ned, "I think we should have a Christmas Party out here on the crush pad Dad." We think Matilda has found her calling...Party Planner!
