Last Saturday, we had the Fourth Annual Pumpkin Carving Party at my house. Six people + one dog + seven pumpkins + lots of knives and saws + wine and Moroccan cocktails + champagne cheddar cheese + Tastes Like Halloween = Awesome. We only had one bloody injury (sustained by the one person who wasn't drinking anything alcoholic) and McKenna ate approximately 16.7 ounces of pumpkin entrails and seeds off of the floor and one slice of cheese. All in all, it was a successful evening. Thanks to Jessica, Emily, and Aaron for providing additional photos.

I carved a seahorse and McKenna decided to carve two paw prints--ours are on the far left of this picture. Next to ours is Jessica's favorite TV character, then Frances and Manuel's large scary pumpkin eating a smaller, scared pumpkin, Emily's black cat, and Aaron's crab.

Jessica asked me to keep her pumpkin at my house and she requested progress reports on it's state of rotting. So, here he is on Sunday night out on the porch with the other two:
