pumpkin extravaganza

In honor of this most festive season, we got our pumpkin on, y'all.

First, we carved pumpkins with Kara-Lara.
My first self-portrait with a pumpkin! All together now: ahhhhh.
Kara and Adam at work.

The "Trevor" Pumpkin by Adam Stewart
(It's OK, I don't get the name either.)

The "I am a Robot" pumpkin by Briana Stewart
(Sorry for the fuzzy pic. And I know I'm seriously lacking in the carving department. There's no need to point and taunt.)
The "Jackie-O-Lantern" by Kara Hallstrom
(Look at those lips!)

And second, we baked pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, since, you know, I'm so totally domestic.
Adam getting ready to pour some pumpkin.
Me sporting an apron — my favorite part of cooking.
(Also, please appreciate that my hair looks like the anti-mullet. You know, party in the front, business in the back. But don't worry, my very short pony tail, which doesn't come close to holding all of my hair, is causing the hair horror.)
"Enough pictures already!" Adam says.
(The pumpkin paparazzi has it rough these days.)

What a fun post! I especially loved the comments in italics.

How can I miss you so much when you live right across the hall? Maybe it's knowing we won't be in Primary together on Sunday... :)

Craig and Carol said...

What fun! Carving, cavorting & baking! Looks like you all had a great FHE. We are excited to see you here next weekend. I wonder. . . will the two of you still look like a pair of red-headed twins? I hope so!
