Carving Pumpkins

My brother Gregg had some time off of work so he decided to come and visit for a couple of days. It was such a pleasant surprise. He hadn't been to our house in almost a year and we hadn't seen him since July- so it was nice to hang out and catch up.
Tuesday night we carved pumpkins. I'd forgotten how goopy they are on the inside. Eew! In the old Mom Trunnell tradition we even baked the pumpkin seeds when we were done. Nummy!

It's the year of the Cat around here. It's all about kitties. See Bennet is holding her dirty Stoli kitty. Well- eating it is more like it. As long as she weans off it by college :)
The finished product.

Nick and Scout snuggled and hung out with us.

Bennet had more fun drawing on her little pumpkin.

A group shot of Gregg, me & Bennet. Gregg's Frankenstein pumpkin turned out really cool!

You guys look like you had a great time! I love baked pumpkin seeds, but for some reason I did not do them this year!

I LOVE the new picture on the top of your blog! The colors are so vivid and I love how her hair is lit up by the sun! Simply amazing shot!

The pumpkins look great! I also baked the seeds, porter thought I was weird for eating them and kept telling me they were yucky even though he never ate them himself.
