Grant was so excited that we weren’t going since it was farther away from our house than we had anticipated in the first place, but once everything was clean and my portion of the food cooked (Chili and Spiced Cider) everything was a lot better. Everyone came over and we had a better turn out than I was expecting consider we only had 2 couples say they were actually coming. I think that we had about 11 couples show up which was awesome. All of the food was great, and I even got a few compliments on my Mother-in-Law’s cider recipe which made me happy because that means I didn’t mess it up.
Here you can see some of the ladies in the dining room carving some pumpkins.
Some more people carving pumpkins, I am glad that the Rivas house was as large as it was, otherwise it would have been very crowded.
Here is a cool picture that Grant took so you can see a few more people.
Some more pictures of the great pumpkins.
I am not completely sure whose pumpkins this was, but I think it was Andy Luksys’, and it was the biggest pumpkin I think out of all of them.
Here you can see the two lit up, they definitely look awesome!
Here is my pumpkin … I decided to go with something different than the usual face, I got my inspiration from a magazine, and I would say once Grant gave me a power drill to make the circles everything was smooth sailing from there.
Here you can see it lit up which is pretty cool. I was kind of sad that we missed out on the farm thing because I would have loved to have some of those cheesy photos because Grant and I hardly EVER take pictures since it is just the two of us. But I will just have to force him to take more pictures of us because I feel like we haven’t been documenting our time very much.
Thanks for hosting!!!! We had so much fun! Your pumpkin turned out great~ plus you opened up the door to a whole new world of carving- incorporating power tools! Andy will be all about that next year!
