pumpkin carving party 2.0

My friend Brittany hosted her 2nd annual pumpkin carving party this afternoon.
Last year Pearson was a little tiny baby so he was easier to bring along.  This year it took quite a bit more entertaining........and snacks!!  Brittany had this awesome teddy bear that Pearson hung out with while he ate his snack. 
 He also showed Case how have the most fun with his Jumperoo.  
 And he also rocked Miss Emily and gently patted her head. It was the sweetest thing.......until he poked her in the eye. Ooops. 
 Because I had to chase around my busy toddler who insisted on showing Brittany every inch of her house that was not baby proofed, I didn't really have time to actually carve a pumpkin.  I just opted for embellishing my pumpkin this year, but I think it turned out pretty darn cute.  
 Jamie embellished her pumpkin too with paint and some swirly jeweled stickers.
 Brittany decorated her pumpkin with a glow in the dark spider web!
 So now that I think about it, it was more of a pumpkin decorating party than a pumpkin carving party!!   We had a great time none the less. It was great to see some of my high school friends. It's hard to believe that it's almost been 10 years since we graduated.  Crazy!!

cute pumpkin! I'm definitely more of a decorating person than carving. :) And I know the feeling with a busy boy...and he's just to get busier!! :)

That's so fun that you guys do a pumpkin party! I agree with you too. We carve... but the poor pumpkins get gross after a few short days. I totally agree that the jewels and paint are way better and keep for longer:) Anyway love your cute little pumpkin and all of his energy! Sweet boy!

Cute idea! Much more manageable than all the work that goes into carving!

Cute embellishing!!! We didn't even buy a big pumpkin this year to carve. I'm a little sad, but we've just been TOO busy!!!
