Wade and I had a lot of fun getting ready for our pumpkin carving party. Finally the house was clean, the food was cooked, the pumpkins were out, and the fire was lit. We even let Alex play with the pumpkins before anyone arrived:
Mike, Carissa, and Emelia were the first to arrive. We put Alex and Emelia on the floor to play, but Alex must have gotten a little too close. Emelia wasn’t very happy. We tried the pacifiers, but that didn’t work either.
We ended up having about 14 people – a mix of church friends, work friends, and our friends from Craig’s List.
