I was looking through some old pictures last night, and found some of Grace and Emily decorating pumpkins. They were so little!! And
Last night Nana, Papa and Uncle Jonathan came over to help us decorate pumpkins. First, we cut out the tops.
Then, we scooped out the insides. Be sure to save the seeds!
Time to transfer the pattern onto the pumpkin.
Mmmm...roasted pumpkin seeds!
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
1 1/2 cups raw whole pumpkin seeds
2 teaspoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoons salt (you can add more or less)
Preheat oven to 300F. Toss seeds in a bowl with the melted butter and salt. Spread the seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes or until golden brown, stir occasionally.
Here are the finished pumpkins!!!
A sweet little kitty. Meow.
We carved a horse for Grace, of course!
Here is my pumpkin owl, inspired by Martha Stewart. Don't worry, he's friendly!
And because I love knock knock jokes, I will leave you with one of my favorite ones....
What are you...an Owl?
Thanks for looking!
