Joshua's 31st Birthday

I know it's been almost a month since my birthday, but I've got to blog about it anyway.

This year I wanted to have a birthday party like I remembered as a kid. Carving pumpkins. Usually when the family gets together to celebrate something we just sit, eat, and play cards. This time my sister Pattie was willing to let me use her house to have everyone carve pumpkins.

I went online and found some templates to use and we all made some pretty good looking jack-o-lanterns. And, yes, Blake is carving a green pumpkin. I recommend it as it really shows off the carving with it's contrast in color. However it was a very juicy pumpkin.

My end result? A scary looking tree with a bat flying overhead. Blake made a cool spider. Spencer's said "Be Swell". Mavric had a three faced pumpkin with stab wounds all around. Marisa and Chandler shared a pumpkin who had a delightful face.

Okay, now I'm all set to make my gingerbread house.

You know, I never did get a picture of the finished green pumpkin.
