I love October. It’s officially Fall, Halloween is right around the corner, it’s pumpkin carving time, the world is changing colors around us. I mean, I think if I had to pick a favorite month, it’d be October.Halloween wins hands down. We’re a bit Halloween obsessed in this house. We just love it. It’s so fun, spooky, creative, tasty, colorful… I mean so many adjectives describe Halloween and October. Anyway, I’ve gotten side tracked with my October/Halloween love. We went pumpkin picking this past weekend (say that 3x fast). We just grabbed some from Walmart because as a family of 5 pumpkin patches just seem a bit pricier than going to Walmart. Plus, I needed to grab a few food items and other things while there. Win, win, right?!
While there, we made sure to grab up a few things to help us get through the rest of this month: quick fixing foods because phew. Next week is Parent Teacher conferences meaning we won’t even get home until like 7pm. As the nights get busy, the food gets quicker and I’m SO thankful for convenient foods easily found at Walmart. We grabbed up some Ballpark Hotdogs (100% beef), some Tyson Any’Tizers,Tyson Crispy Strips (100% white meat, no antibiotics) and some State Fair Corndogs (no by products, great source of protein).
So, after our adventures in Walmart, we headed home to get our carving on. Yay! I popped some Any’Tizers in the oven for a quick snack while we set up and then we prepped the rest of the food and the house for our carving friends to arrive.
Overall, we had a blast! The food was a HUGE hit. I thought my kiddos were going to BURST at the seems waiting (not so) patiently to get to eat their “fingers” haha.
It was so funny to see the designs created. Owen went with a dragon. Maddie went with a ghost but then broke her pumpkin (toothpicks to the rescue) and Fin did a bug thing. David took control over our pumpkin (win for me, I was just left to cook & take photos). Our pumpkin is a goofy looking fella.
What do you think? Have you ever hosted a Pumpkin Carving party? It was so much fun! And I had a BLAST creating those little finger *wink* foods.
