(re)capturing the fun & wonder

Pumpkin carving party

THIS is how we prepped for Maggie’s Ninth birthday party. The family (minus Tor who conveniently napped through it all), got into production mode with Dad at the helm, cutting out the tops, and the rest of us scoop, scoop, scooping for a good hour.

On Sunday we had 11 pumpkins ready for her friends to carve, and all Tomas and I had to do was provide the tools (kits purchased for a couple bucks at our supermarket), some snacks (including home-toasted pumkin seeds) , and a cake. Other than that, the girls completely entertained themselves; something this mama could get used to!

This was probably the easiest party we’ve ever thrown, PERFECT for a gaggle of nine and ten year old girls.
