The Simple Life!

Who would think that college students could still have fun like this? It wasn't planned, but some how we ended up with pumpkin carving, seed roasting and candy eating at our house tonight. My youngest and her friends made up their own entertainment and ended up here for the night. I couldn't believe they had so much fun carving these pumpkins. I sent them outside to do the deed. It was a cold dark night and they still persisted. When I suggested they bring in their finished product. You couldn’t have seen a more delighted group. They proudly displayed their creations, lit their candles, and ooohhh and awhhed over their work.

Makes me happy to see their joy in the simple things of life at their age.

And they were ever so happy and grateful for me to roast them their seeds. I really couldn't quite get over all their enjoyment from such a simple event.

They even cleaned up the mess!!!!!!!!!!!

Sandy 4 Reluctant Entertainers, this is what you can look forward too, when you share hospitality with your kids when they are young. They catch it too!

Sounds like you all had a good time. As much as I like Pumpkin seeds from the health store I had never thought of them being roasted straight from the fruit (or is it a vegetable). Buying pumkins is a fairly new thing in this country. Has moved on fast though.

Those are some of the best decorated pumpkins I've seen. Love the row of them along the counter. Your kitchen must have been a busy and hopping place. Glad that they cleaned up the mess, too.

Thanks for stopping by to visit me the other day. I see that you knew exactly what I was saying about spring weather in the East. Now I know what you mean about spring weather out West. :]
