The Princess and The Crazy!!!

One of my favorite Fall/Halloween activities is carving pumpkins!!! Last year Aaron and I paid tribute to our fabulous Colorado Rockies for making it to the World Series. This year we were not so fortunate so we had to take another route.

We debated about doing an Obama face. Not that means we our for him, you just can't live in our neighborhood and not be an Obama supporter. So if a McCain pumpkin was left on the front porch, I'm not so sure it would last too long. There was also talk about a Dwight face but both were just too complicated.


Well after a few days we had finaly decided on what we were going to do! First, we started this years pumpkin festivities by making a few caramel apples. Yum!

Then we got our our carving kit...
and we set off on another carving adventure.

Of course I have to save the pumpkin seeds! This is one of my favorite parts about it all!

After about an hour of gutting, scooping, cutting and shaving finished off with cramped hands, these are the finished products! I chose a Disney princess in light of our upcoming Disneyland vacation. I would have done Belle but I couldn't find a decent stencil.

There you have it... The Princess and The Crazy!!!
