|My cute roommates|
Halloween is upon us and my rommates wanted to have an "apartment date night" and carve Jack-o-Lanterns! It was more work than I remember as a kid....and a little less exciting;) Lots of guts, and I happened to choose a pumpkin with remarkably thick veggie. That was kind of hard to cut through with our butter knives.
|I don't know why we didn't win the competition...|
BUT...it was still fun! There's something satisfying about participating in holiday traditions. The smell of the pumpkin guts spread all over newspaper brought back memories of elementary school competitions and my determination to create the PERFECT pumpkin. I would walk into the gym after school and see all our pumpkins lined up on the stairs of the stage and hope that mine had a ribbon pinned to it! Being roommates with Molly and Mikayla, ("Always go for the W!!! (Which is the 'win' for those of you who don't know...)) alas, we didn't win this competition judged by our helpful next door neighbor.
Which, I don't know why because our Jack-o-Lantern was the epitome of Halloween-y traditionalism.
