October FHE Tradition

When Darrell and I were at Snow, and not quite officially dating, he invited me to come over and carve pumpkins with him. My favorite part of that was it took him like 20 minutes to get the guts to ask me to carve pumpkins with him. Anyway, since then, we have always carved pumpkins for an FHE in October. We were sad to realize Monday night that this was the first time since we've been married that we didn't carve pumpkins with our great friends, the Anderson's, in Logan. They are the best, and we miss them. Anyway, we decided to go ahead and do it just the two of us this year after Steven went to bed. It was still really fun!
Darrell got really motivated with his pumpkin, and did this ultimate BYU pumpkin with a cougar on top. You couldn't see how awesome it was without the light in it...but my camera wouldn't take a good picture. However, you can still kind of see what an awesome job he did! I went fancy last year (I did Strongbad) and decided this year to go for a simple silly face. :)

Fun Pumpkins :) I love going to your page and hearing Enchanted music play. I'm glad I'm not the only one that is obsessed with Disney and not 5 :) Hope all is going well!

Awww, you guys DO remember us! Amber and I carved our pumpkins a couple of weeks (or so) ago and we were sad that we didn't get to do it with you guys. I'd post pictures but they're all shriveled-y now. Anyways, it made me happy to know it wasn't just us missing you for pumpkin carving this year. Oh and nice pumpkins too :D
