Well It's here...
Our festivities began on Saturday. Every year, it's tradition to go down to our friends house for a little Halloween/Birthday celebration. It's always fun to get together for laughs, fellowship and a little football!
Each couple was asked to carve a pumpkin. I would not consider Brant nor myself very 'astistic'. We tend to focus our expertise on trying to win football contests...ha! As a reminder, I will have to remember next year to purchase a pumpkin carving kit. Cutting a pumpkin with a steak knife is not the best tool to use. Also scraping the seeds and slimy mess out makes me want to gag...sorry for the details.
Brant and I never really discussed what we wanted to carve. We thought about a Gamecock and a SC Palmetto tree...but so did our friends. Great minds think alike! I just wish our pumpkin looked as good as theirs.
So, we went with the St. Louis Cardinals since they just won the 2011 World Series. Yeah!! I'm not much of a baseball fan, but I do have an official Cardinals shirt with Pujols on the back.
The competition - aka Palmetto tree, Halloween, None - spelled out, Gamecock and STL Cardinals logo.
We failed big time!
We ended the night with a Gamecock win and some great memories!
Happy Halloween 2011
