It's Getting Closer!

Tonight is the annual Bailey pumpkin carving event. Last year was the FIRST ANNUAL and this year, I have high hopes that it will be much better.

Last Year Recap: (in case you missed last halloween, here's the link to the post)

E got home early on Halloween to start carving the pumpkins since we got a late start. By the time I got home from work, he already had both pumpkins gutted and he had almost finished carving his pumpkin. HOWEVER, he did the dog and I did the B, and evidently the dog was "incredibly difficult" because when I came home, there were tools and pumpkin guts EVERYWHERE!!!!! And by tools, I don't mean kitchen tools or a pumpkin carving kit (which we had forgotten to buy). I am talking about a jigsaw and drill. I am honestly surprised he didn't chop the top off with a circular saw.

This year, to save our tools for more important projects, we are learning from our mistakes and have already purchased a pumpkin carving kit just for this occassion. I picked out our pumpkin stencils yesterday. It is SO Super easy to find stencils online for free. Just google pumpkin stencils or pumpkin faces and see what comes up. This site had alot to choose from...click here. And look how tiny Maggie was.

P.S. You should have seen me at the grocery store buying pumpkins the other day. Going through the giant boxes of heavy pumpkins trying to find 2 that looked remotely alike. And then I was for sure that I was going to man-handled for trying to smuggle a pumpkin out under my shirt...get it?...cause I am pregnant!!!
