Halloween Bonfire

We decided to have a bonfire for Halloween this year.  First we went to a nearby pick-your-own pumpkin patch to choose two big pumpkins.  We rode in a wagon pulled by a tractor to the pumpkin patch.  After choosing our two pumpkins we placed them in the wagon with T and pulled them to the car so we could take them home and carve them.halloween 2010 (7) halloween 2010 (3) halloween 2010 (5) halloween 2010 (1) halloween 2010 (8)My husband and I decided to try more difficult designs this year.  We each choose our design and dug in, the carving defiantly took longer than our usual triangle eyes and toothy smile jack-o-lanterns.  In the end we were very pleased with our work. halloween 2010 (10) halloween 2010 (13) halloween 2010 (16) halloween 2010 (21) halloween 2010 (23) halloween 2010 (22)We roasted hot dogs for dinner, and had soda for drinks.halloween 2010 (32)halloween 2010 (45) halloween 2010 (27) halloween 2010 (33) halloween 2010 (30)We roasted smores for dessert and had homemade carmel apples and candy corn too.halloween 2010 (26) halloween 2010 (38) halloween 2010 (40) halloween 2010 (41)The kids loved it and we all had a great time!
