Pumpkin Carving

Have I mentioned I love our sitter and her family AND friends?
Last night we went to "Shanna's" house for her annual pumpkin carving event. Shannon (Connor calls her Shanna) is Tina's neighbor whom Connor has takin a lovin' too!It was great! She had the whole room covered in plastic for easy clean up, tables full of carving utensils and big bowls for the 'innerds'. There were streamers hanging from the garage door, balloons floating in the air, kiddy halloween music playing, pizza to eat, cupcakes to devour, juice for the kids and beer for us!
My job was to cut off the tops and clean out the insides. Then dad did the rest!
Shannon even gave out goodie bags (big ones!) full of light-up toys and anything halloween themed! Madison did a great job modeling the treat bags.
Connor really just ate cupcakes the whole time...wasn't really a big fan of carving.
Taylor carved my pumpkin while I was on Connor dutyAndres and Taylor did a great job making our pumpkins look good!
And he was very proud of his work. The pumpkin says Connor with a scary mouth! I think we do a 'Connor' pumpkin every year!
The closest Connor got to a pumpkin was this picture.
It was a lot of fun and we were invited back for the Gingerbread House making party before Christmas.
Shannon gets my vote for neighbor of the year!!!
