Pumpkin Party

Pumpkin Carving

The pumpkin photos from the pumpkin party are here. Not quite as elaborate as in years past, but still an awful lot of fun.

And the rain stayed away for long enough that I got to use the new firepit, and made quite an impressive inferno.

A year ago …

Last year, someone crashed my pumpkin party. This year, she co-hosted the party with me. I sure am a lucky guy.
