Pumpkin Carving

Before having kids I had never even attempted to carve a pumpkin.  But I think once you have kids, Pumpkin Carving is on some mandatory bucket list for the holidays, just like taking your kids to see Santa.  Last year we bought a pumpkin carving set and guide and Hubs did a nice job of carving up something.  This year, I wanted to do something different.   The LSU-Alabama football game is this coming weekend and it's being called "the game of the century."  Everyone all over the Sports Universe is talking about this game.  It's #1 LSU vs. #2 Alabama.  Epic.  So instead of the traditional jack-o-lantern this year, we stayed true to our family values and carved a BEAT BAMA jack-o-lantern.

And I did NOT buy this pumpkin at the pumpkin patch.  Why?  Because I'm cheap.  And the same pumpkin at Wal-Mart costs 75% less.  In case you're thinking that I cheated on the holiday bucket list, we did get them mini-pumpkins at the patch that were 50 cents each. I'm not that cheap.

Done carving!  And look at their cute mini pumpkins that I decorated with a Sharpie.  :)

It looks great on our doorstep!

Except now it's withering away and I should probably throw it out before the neighbors complain to the HOA about the smell.

Much love,
