This past Saturday we carved our annual Saint-O-Lanterns! We almost didn't do it this year (we missed getting to the pumpkin patch before they closed for the season and I hadn't purchase any pumpkins) but on Friday night I went out grocery shopping and was able to get some carving pumpkins at Trader Joe's. I'm glad we made the effort.  It's always messy and stressful so much fun!
