Carving Our 2014 Saint-O-Lanterns

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life with Like Mother, Like Daughter. ~


Pretty pumpkins all ready to carve into this year's Saint-O-Lanterns!


Everyone was so happy when Daddy arrived home a little early from work and we could begin! 

They were not so happy when I realized that I had no idea what happened to all our carving supplies! We finished carving the next night, after Sean picked up new supplies on his way home from work.



Poor Captain… The pumpkin he choose at our parish fundraiser last Sunday was completely rotten inside. He tried to salvage it, until I just couldn't take the smell any longer and insisted it go straight to the compost pile… far, far away from the house. It smelled SO bad! 

I gave him the white pumpkin I had purchased from Trader Joe's to use as a decoration. He was skeptical at first, but in the end I think it worked out better for St. Luke's symbolic Ox!

Any guesses on this one? Just wait until you see it lit up!
