Foto Friday #15

I better hurry and get this posted or it won't be Friday anymore...

First, a picture of the frenzied festivities from PAJAMA DAY!


They are a blur of motion, are they not? So full of vim and vigor! So much like myself these days...

Sunday night we carved pumpkins, since the Man was going to miss out on FHE due to a business trip. But the good news is that is his last one until well after the baby is born. Hooray! I drew the pictures, he got to do all the yucky stuff.


The kids were fascinated by what was inside. Once the initial "ewwwww!" wore off, they were quickly getting bored, so I suggested they pick out the seeds so I could roast them.


The Boy though this was the coolest thing ever. Parental permission to get all gooey is a moment little boys live for.

We were joined by the beloved Aunts. I was taking pictures with my camera and Aunt Denise's and apparently, I got better pictures of the pumpkin massacre on Denise's (I think she was deliberately making herself blurry in all my pictures so I wouldn't post any of those). Sorry about that. Just so you don't feel entirely cheated, here's a shot of the Co-ed:


Now, does anyone know if there is a trick to roasting pumpkin seeds? I've never done it before...

How fun! Wash the seeds really well and soak them in salted water for a couple of hours. roast them at 350 until you can smell them. orthey are brown. add extra salt if you like. Enjoy.

Oh my!
You should see what pumpkin carving is like at our house with all of our boys flinging pumpkin guts at each other.....

I wonder what a pumpkin jell-o salad would taste like?

I ditto what Kristina said. Your boy has the cutest smile!
Max doesn't like pumpkin guts. They freak him out.

Looks like such great Halloween fun!

GO for the seeds! We love those things! And don't forget the Lawry's Season all, you MUST sprinkle that on the seeds if you plan on serving them to your husband.

PS- I never soak my seeds, just wash them off and pat dry. They take longer to cook, and are a little less crispy. I am following the above posted recipe this year!

Cute, cute, Cute!!!! Looks like they had lots of fun. I wonder how my boys will do this year? Last year they just about threw up as we were getting the seeds and stuff out!!!!! Brian wouldn't come within 10 feet of the pumpkins once they were carved because he didn't like the smell!

We need a PJ day.
Yay for pumpkin carving! I need to figure out a great pumpkin.
I also am enjoying the Cheese on The Boy's face.

I like cajun spiced pumpkin seeds.
Also Cinn/sugar coated.
