pumpkin carving!

So yesterday, Matt and I decided to ditch work and homework (well he ditched work and I didn't do any homework) and we went to The Pumpkin Station in Mission Valley. It was so much more than just a pumpkin patch, it had rides for little kids and a petting zoo :) We bought two pumpkins, a big one and a little one. Then we went to the Halloween store, but Matt didn't find anything he wanted for his costume, so we went to Wal-Mart. I got red fabric to make a cape for my Snow White costume and white fabric for my Cleopatra costume. Matt got a padded chest protector for his Jack Bauer costume, and he figured out he wanted to be a Mexican wearing a poncho and a sombrero for his other costume. Overall, a very succesful trip to Wal-mart. We went back to Matt's and started carving. Originally, Matt tried to make Larry the Cucumber from Veggie came out okay. We decided to take a break from carving and roasting pumpkin seeds. Last night, we saw Paranormal Activity....let me just say, it was SUPER CREEPY (I was afraid to go to bed that night). Anyways, we got back and Chris, Matt's roommate, convinced us to go to Vons and buy more pumpkins to carve. So of course, we stayed up carving pumpkins until super late, but they came out wonderful. Matt changed his original Larry to Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc and carved a new Larry. Chris made the Abraham Lincoln, and I did the other little two :) I just love Halloween!!
