First pumpkin carving experience: success. Ben is out of town for the weekend and I invited Toni to spend the night. What better time to try out my pumpkin carving skills! Toni has pumpkin-carving experience, so she told me exactly what we needed and gave me a step-by-step of the process. I bought this pumpkin carving kit at the store and got all ambitious with my design. There's the initial stencil. Can you tell what it is?! It's a Cardinals logo pumpkin! woot wootWe had the game going on the kitchen tv, of course! Every so often I would yell at the tv and Toni would look up and say, “Yessi, it's NOT that serious!” and I'd reply, “YES IT IS THAT SERIOUS!” It's happening… Right when we finished cleaning up, the Cardinals WON THE WORLD SERIES! WE WIN, WE WIN, WE WIN! (Toni doing the running man) WE'RE NUMBER 1!! I didn't realize I was missing the last little tail on the “S” until I looked at the pictures later and there was no way I was going back and re-taking them all, so I'll just leave it at that. It's close enough!
