It's the Great Pumpkin Carving Party

Last night we held a Pumpkin Carving Party. We had Sarah, Ed, Brandi, Graham, Crystal, Bane, Claire, Gregory over for a spooky dinner and then carve pumpkins. Below are my two pumpkins... The first one is a pumpkin with braces and the next is Mike Wazowski from Monster's Inc.

For dinner we had Pork Tenderloin Monsters, Mashed "boo"tatoes, Deviled Spiders (eggs), Mummy Dogs, and Spider Cupcakes. Our drinks that we served were Blood Red Punch with floating hands and Pina "Ghou"lata's.
Our Dining room was all decked out with spooky spiders, skeletons and candles. The drink glasses were all rimmed with red syrup so it looked like dripping blood. My candles at the table were white dripping blood.
My living room was also decked out with creepy crawlers and candles. I had cockroaches crawling up the right of the fireplace and centipedes were on the bottom. Then I had spiders on the left and on my wreath.
After dinner everyone carved their own pumpkins. I think everyone had a lot of fun. We had some really good pumpkins at the end!!
Today Mamaw is here for a little while and I'm going to try and dress up Maddie and Zack and take a lot of pictures. If it is nice I might take them to our church's Trunk or Treat and then to a couple of our neighbor's houses to show them their outfits (we don't want any candy!!).
