So, tonight we had our pumpkin carving FHE. Dominic did his from start to finish ( I had to help him scrape the inside, but he gutted it.) I was so proud of him! When lit up, it looks really SMOOKY.
Sidenote: In Alaska we would carve our pumpkins at the beginning of October and enjoy them all month. They froze as soon as you put them outside so it didn't really matter when you did them. In fact many people would put them out, then bake them into pumpkin pie come Thanksgiving. Every year Sean has to remind me that we can't start so early, except this year...I finally remembered. The temperate weather here does not permit us to carve pumpkins so early and have them last till Halloween. Tops: 1 week, we're pushing it by doing it today.
Penny liked it when we lit the candle inside and then she would turn out the lights, comment how "smooky" it is and then blow it out.
Another project done today (besides folding and putting away the 5 loads of laundry from Friday) was that I hemmed my curtains. They were about 8 inches too long and just bunched up on the floor at the bottom. It was also 4 panels and so I had to sew them together so that there were two panels instead of 4. It turned out perfect. =) Phew....it didn't really take that long (maybe 1 hour total), I just really didn't want to do it.
Behind this curtain is our sliding glass door that leads out to our sideyard. When we moved in, it had vertical blinds. I hate vertical blinds. The End.
