pumpkin carving

We had some friends over this weekend to carve pumpkins.
By some friends I mean a lot.
It made me want a house.

When you wanted to go to the bathroom you had to say
"excuse me," "excuse me," "oh, no, excuse me!" like a million times.
But you know what, we have our whole lives to live in a house.
So I am going to be happy to live in our homey apartment.
It may be small, but at least we have a home!

Besides carving pumpkins,
we also had some delicious food thanks to some delicious friends. :)

(btw, these are pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, yum.)

pumpkin bread, fitting

And finally, the end result:
8 pumpkins sitting on my porch

Also, I've realized lately that I have neglected to share two very important things:
1. my dad moved to the state of Washington last week
2. we have a roommate

So, I plan on sharing that soon.
Until then, have a happy Tuesday!

Have you carved pumpkins yet?

It looks like a wonderful time! I miss those pumpkin carving memories. NOTHING else smells like pumpkin guts . . . I watched an Alton Brown show today about the PERFECT pie crust. I'm gonna try it soon with pumpkin pie. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Nice pumpkins! I think I'm going to need that recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.

I know what you mean about wishing for a house when you have people over. Every time we have a crowd, I start having house envy. Then I think about all the work that goes into maintaining a house, and the blow it would be to our budget, and suddenly the envy just evaporates.

Yes, yes, same here.

I really like the idea of putting work into a house, you know revamping something really old into something new looking, but right now taking that on would be crazy for us. Someday though. Maybe if I get a job come August... :)
