pumpkin stink-eye


My little cousin, who lives closer to me these days since she began college this fall, came over for a slumber party this past weekend.

I texted her before we met up to see if she wanted to carve a pumpkin while she was visiting with us. This was her response:



Pretty enthusiastic, right?

She said she hadn’t carved a pumpkin since she was 8 or 9 years old.

How sad :(

But then I thought… GREAT – the girl doesn’t know how much work it is and will quickly leave the rest to us and retreat to texting on her blackberry or creepin’ {as she calls it} on facebook.


She did the whole thang herself – came up with the idea, cleaned out all the seeds and goop, traced perfect circles, and went about actually carving it.

College must be really rubbing off on her ;)



I was impressed to say the least.



and I never miss a chance to take a crazy killer picture…


See what I mean?

She calls this work of art “the Stink Eye” – ???

Girl cracks me up, constantly.



Later in the week, I was taking a picture of the mini gourds on my coffee table and realized after it uploaded it that someone in the background was giving me the stink eye!!!!
