Carving Out a Fun Afternoon

31 Oct

This weekend my friend invited me over for a pumpkin carving party. Early on I struggled with my pumpkin until I was rescued by my friend Emily who has a hidden talent as a carver. She scooped and sculpted my pumpkin, bringing my little frog cauldron to life.

Others were more talented than I, but my natural competitive spirit was dulled by the abundance of cider and gingersnaps provided by our lovely hostess. All in all it was a great way to spend a crisp Fall Sunday and recover from the spooky storm that struck the night before.
