Pumpkin Carving Party

Want to know a great way to extend Halloween celebrations? Have more than one party! Halloween party, pumpkin carving party, et cetera.

My friends and I had a little pre-Halloween, pumpkin carving party. We all brought pumpkins, stensils, tools, snacks, and some drinks. We put in some Halloween-y movies (Clue, It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Hocus Pocus, and an episode of Supernatural) and carved away!

I, sadly, had a ton of homework to work on, so I did that and my friend, Jhenn, was super awesome and gutted my pumpkin for me. Katja saved all of the "guts" so she could get all the pumpkin seeds out and toast them for the party next week.

We all had a great time sitting and chatting. And everyone carved a pumpkin.

Here are the results!
Isaac's Weeping Angel

Everyone's pumpkins! Don't they look great?!
We had a grim reaper, a haunted house, Stitch (whose candle was not cooperating here), a Halloween kitty and the Weeping Angel.

Here is mine (surprise, surprise...):
It's the Goblin King!
That seems appropriate! One of Isaac's coworkers got the stencil for me! I love it! I know I messed up a bit--it was a difficult pattern, but I think he's recognizable. Sooo exciting!

That about sums up our pumpkin carving party! Our Halloween party will be next weekend. A bit late, I know, but I am perfectly OK with spreading out the fun! Stay tuned for more Halloween posts.

What did everyone else carve this year?
