A Gathering

We had a little pumpkin carving get-together with the family the other night. I made pumpkin soup, which was soooo yummy!!!

I roasted all the seeds, after Ashleigh cleaned them all up! I toss them with some butter, Worcestershire sauce, and some Johnny's seasoning salt. Last year I had so many that I froze them in Ziploc bags to eat throughout the year.

The competitive side comes out in everyone!

 Brady's pumpkin was so detailed that he didn't get it finished until much later, and I forgot to get a picture :(

Normally I'm busy separating the guts from the seeds and I never carve a pumpkin, but this year I saw a pattern I really liked so I got busy!! I rather enjoyed myself !

The night before, we went on a little outing with Ashleigh and Brady, up into Canada, to a haunted corn maze.

Ashleigh's always breaking the rules !

I love this picture of the two of them !

They were really, really scared !

There were a lot of teenagers there that night and this group was more than willing to pose for me.
Brian and I were so impressed with all of them ~ no hoodlums or shenanigans ~ just really good kids out having fun !

 Now it's Halloween evening and I'm home alone with candy ! I never have any trick ~ or ~ treater's but I need to be prepared ! I cleaned out all my pumpkins and am roasting all the seeds. Think I'll settle down on the sofa and watch a good movie !

Happy  Halloween !!!

  1. Fun times! I finished eating the seed we roasted last weekend. Hubs carved a pumpkin, we gave the rest to the grands. The soup looks yummy!
