Carving and Baking

Yesterday, we did some baking, roasting, and carving.

Oh, and please ignore the big spot of missing paint in the back wall. That's one of the many lovely advantages of having a macaw.



So, we started this adventure around 3 o'clock.


This is what my son did while we were decorating.

Video Games.

Besides eating all the cookies as soon as they came out of the oven.


These are all the cookies that we had left after the rest were devoured.

We almost baked 150.


Then came the pumpkins.


Sugey really enjoyed the guts this year.


What's the best part of pumpkin carving?????

The roasted seeds of course.


Here's the recipe we used.

Boil them first with salt. Always works great.


Can you guess which one is mine?

Sinister Jack, of course!


How about the kids?

Daryn did the cat. Ryan did Bowzer, Kailen did the skull and Sugey did Lightning Mcqueen. If you look close enough, you can see the cat. (:


9 o'clock

Who knew that all of this activity would be so tiring.....


Guess what I did while the kids went to sleep.

Knit, Knit, Knit.
