It started out with pumpkin carving at the Pernecky's on Friday night. I was feeling festive, so I made a finger-food version of caramel apples to have to snack on. The apple slices weren't the easiest to cover in caramel, but they still tasted great!
I used a pumpkin carving kit for the first time, and stenciled out my pumpkin design. As a kid, we'd always just hack into our pumpkins with random kitchen knifes, so this was a fun change.
Look at how excited we were!
Here are all our pumpkins! (From left to right) Josh did the first two, mine is next, then Ally's, Matt & Kelly's, and then Mike's.
Saturday, we spent the whole day at Ikea, but that story will have to be explained in an entirely different post! :) On Halloween evening, Josh and I set up a table and chairs, candy, drinks, music and pumpkins on our driveway. We sat outside all evening passing out candy and visiting with neighbors. It was a fun tradition to start in our new neighborhood.
Everyone had a great time, including my little trick-or-treaters, Seven and Romie!
