Pumpkin Dinner

Tonight I had a break from putting on FHE, so I thought it would be fun to have a little pumpkin dinner like I did last year. In fact... I think I want it to be one of my new traditions that I do every year. I of course made one of my favorite soups "Sassy Salsa Pumpkin Soup". Also made corn bread and then Jeanna & Mieka brought a salad.  It was a simple, delicious and fun meal. Soup and Corn bread are perfect for this rainy weather we have been having too.

It was nice to have a small dinner and catch up with friends. We then got a little goofy.

Cheers to the pumpkins! And being Festive!

After we were done eating and sitting around chatting, I thought... well, why not carve the pumpkins? I mean, they are already scooped out. The hardest part was over. Sure they are small, but you can still carve something in it. So we did... well, except for Tina. She is not festive.

P.S. I carved an owl in my pumpkin, not a cat.

All in all a fun night with some fun girls. After they left, I watched "Monster House" with another friend. Cute Halloween movie for anyone who has not seen it.

I don't know if Asher is ready for Monster House. Cute pumpkin carving! Did you get it off of a site or make it up on your own. I am not good at carving.

I love all your fun ideas! Good job at being festive...I'm not feeling the Halloween vibe this year. Maybe because I hate scary movies and that is the only thing on TV lately!!
