Pumpkin Carving Time!!!

This is my favorite time of the year….the cool crisp air, golden aspen leaves, even the crunch of the leaves as you walk down the sidewalk!  Not only do I love the outdoor beauty, I also love going to pick out that big orange pumpkin for fall festive decor.

We had a pumpkin carving party last night and it totally reminded me of my childhood….it was so much fun!  It was a great opportunity to hang out with friends, get creative and make yummy pumpkin seeds!  Prior to the party, I was searching the internet for some jack-o-lantern ideas and couldn’t believe all of the creative pumpkins out there.  It’s kind of tough deciding whether or not you want a traditional jack-o-lantern, a funny face, or some other Halloween character. Here are some of the pumpkins me and my friends came up with…

With the election coming up, I’ve also seen a lot of political pumpkins out there.  If you’re not the most talented artist, these stencils are available on websites such as Yes We Carve and Campaign-O-Lanterns.

And for a little more difficult and some very unique pumpkins ideas, I found this website call Zombie Pumpkins.  I think it’s time to turn off your computer and go to your nearest pumpkin patch….Have fun!
