Halloween would be incomplete without some jack-o-lanterns. Agatha started the pumpkin carving party tradition a few years ago and we decided to host this time. Apparently sweatpants are unaccepptable attire being the hostess, whoops!
The night before, I wanted to make some cute Halloween treats for our pumpkin carving party. I guess there are certain expectations for Mama Stuart, since it was shocking that I wouldn’t make something from scratch or use the pumpkin seeds for something else (I just don’t like how pumpkin seeds taste!). Since it was a weeknight, I took the easy way out and baked cupcakes out of a box and bought frosting out of a can. I wanted to create something like these, but I discovered that cake/cupcake decorating is not my forte. I should take the Wilton cake decorating class. Maybe it was the “creamy” type frosting I bought or the heat blowing over the cupcakes, but all I got was a drippy sloppy mess! It was so sad to see all these unappetizing looking cupcakes. L But I have good friends because they still ate them J Agatha wouldn’t even let the frosting on her arm go to waste!
But back to the pumpkin carving party…Mia had fun with the other two baby girls - it was so cute to see them interact. It also felt like a photography studio swapping babies in and out with our pumpkin backdrop.
Three pumpkins are missing from the final picture for this year, but I think they all came out pretty good!
