Pumpkin Carving Party 2008

We decided to have a pumpkin carving party this year. We carve pumpkins every year and decided we wanted to share the fun with friends! Oh- meet the new additions to our porch! I picked out the tall one-such personality, don't you think?
Here is a close up of the K-Man doing all he could NOT to touch the "yucky stuff"!

Throughout the whole carving process Little Bit kept saying,"EWWWewwwEWWW"!


Here is a quick glance at some of the fun that went on Friday night!


Here are some ideas from our pumpkin party:
I decided to read The Pumpkin Patch Parable at the beginning of the party. I love this book and recommend you read it to your children during this time of year!


I made these little jack-o-lantern guys out of marsh mellows, craft sticks and flavored chocolate!


I thought these party favors turned out too cute!


I stuck the "guys" in a black pot with some moss to make them easier to display.
I also typed out a summary of the parable with various scriptures for the families to take home.


I also made these jack-o-lantern picks. I used store bought stickers, black card stock and toothpicks.


The picks were stuck in these pumpkin shaped sandwiches for the kids. Easy and fun!


Here is my table with a simple menu of Pumpkin...Pumpkin and more Pumpkin!
(We had other hearty foods that remained in the kitchen-not to mess up the pretty table-Ha!)
The party was a blast and I look forward to making it an annual event!
