Pumpkins, Power Drills, and Seeds

We had so much fun carving Mara's pumpkin and roasting the seeds! Mara first drew her pumpkin face on paper, then drew it on her pumpkin with permanent marker, and then Jedd got out the power drill and knife. They worked hard together to create her pumpkin masterpiece. Sonna drew on her pumpkin and made her own scary face as shown!
I put the seeds in water and brought them to a boil and then let them simmer for 10 minutes. Then I spread them on a cookie sheet with 3 Tbls. olive oil and sprinkled sea salt on top. I baked them for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees. They were really yummy (when fresh, not the next morning as Mara discovered).
Jedd will be gone this Halloween weekend on his second annual Man Hunt. He's going out in the wilderness with 3 friends. Two of them are hunters and the other two are not. Jedd's not but he's excited to winter camp, play cards and drink some good beer with friends.

  1. Mara, your pumpkin looks like it's growling...but sort of a happy growl because he's smiling. He looks very Halloween-y.

    And Sonna, where does your shirt keep going? You remind me of myself when I was your optional at all times.

    Can't wait to come and see you girls!!!! SOON!!!
