Pumpkin carving party! Last weekend I was able to make it out to the pumpkin carving festivities that Sarah puts on every year at one of the Beacon Rock Buildings.  They had a fire roaring inside, with soup on the metal top of the fireplace.  Big bowls filling up with pumpkin pulp/seeds/guts and a sink to wash them slimy hands.  Plus some hot drinks to make the tummy smile.  Meanwhile we sketched on pumpkins, carved, etched, and even used a dremel tool.  Silly grins, evil sneers, wolves, pumpkin pies and more decorated the pumpkins of children and adults.  I also ran around with the dripping pulp for a bit being silly.  So maybe some pumpkins will be growing here next year!
