Pumpkins galore!

The weekend before Halloween and that means pumpkin carving! Of course, these will have to sit in buckets of water to keep from shriveling until Thursday, but who is to pass up a chance to get together, right?

Last minute pumpkin shopping. My mother clued us in to a sale of $3 pumpkins. I thought they would be picked over, but there were still a lot left!

We got 3 pumpkins because at $3, why wouldn’t you? :mrgreen:

We made the pumpkin dump cake for the family since they never got to try any of the one I made for my garden club and John wanted it again.

We also had apple slices and my sister brought pumpkin bread.  Plus I made a loaded baked potato dip. (My family will never starve when we get together :roll:  )This is just cooked bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and a bit of hot sauce.

My father said this may have supplanted his favorite onion dip!  I figured he would enjoy this and I was right.

The mess being made!

Pixie seemed like she didn’t quite know what to do.

My planned design:

I always worry about cutting it out wrong once the pattern is transferred to the pumpkin! All turned out good, though.

My sister brought a pumpkin kit that I can’t remember the name of where you just do a design in the skin without cutting all the way through. Here is that:

After carving, the nieces got manicures and my  mom put on her black widow costume, which I should have gotten a picture of :D

All the pumpkins in a row:

John decided to do a Broncos pumpkin, which came out really good!

I have one other pumpkin to carve that I will probably do on Wednesday night.

Always a fun time getting together!  Biking update – this week was slim pickings, but I did get in some riding and mileage sits at 2388  – that’s 112 miles to go!
