Today I decided I wanted to carve pumpkins, to sort of get in the festive spirit of Halloween. Plus, the only decoration we currently have up are some electrical jack-o-lanterns that just don't quite cut it. So I journeyed to Ralphs, grabbed some poor, unsuspecting pumpkins, and headed home to perform some serious surgery. From there, Matt and I pretty much covered all the counters in the kitchen in pumpkin guts and seeds (while saving most of it to go into the Great Halloween Pumpkin Display, pictures of that to follow at a later date). While we only narrowly avoided cutting ourselves with the rather large kitchen knives we were using, I must say, we did very well.
