Last night Dusty and I went with some friends down to a Apple Farm and Pumpkin Patch for Family Home Evening. It was so much fun. We went on a hayride out to the pumpkin patch and picked pumpkins and took a hayride back. They had a really neat little country store an it was so much fun. The mountains and sunset were absolutely gorgeous and it was SO COLD! Everyone was bundled up but it really felt like it was Halloween. And to me that just makes it feel like the holidays are here already. I LOVE this time of year.
Dusty said he wanted a pumpkin shaped like a peanut or a pear.....I thought he was kidding. The first pumpkin I saw was exactly like a peanut and he ran over to it and picked it up. "Let's get this one." That's what happens when you tell husbands they can have whatever pumpkin they want. Somehow they have a radar for the most retarded one. I didn't care though. It was fun.
Anyway, we actually found one that was more deformed than the one we first saw. So, alas, here is our twisted pumpkin. I think it would make a great witches face or a ghost. Dusty thinks it should be a skull and cross bones. What do you think it would look good as?
Afterwards we went back to our neighbors house and had soup in bread bowls and then ice cream and homemade chocolate spiderwebs on top for dessert while we watched Hocus Pocus. It was so much fun! It still floors me that I am living in Utah sometimes. Local businesses have Family Home Evening specials on Monday nights because so many families around here do FHE. It was so packed last night at hayride because it was Monday night and people were there for FHE.
Take a look at the pics and tell us what you think we should carve or paint our pumpkin as.....
