Pumpkin Massacre 2010

We really did have a wonderful weekend and I want to share it with you all! There will be a couple more posts after this, but this is a start.
Friday night, we held our annual Pumpkin Massacre. We had just a few friends come by with their pumpkins, played the Edward Scissorhands sound track & Harry Potter's too, and gathered under our lantern-lit carport to carve some pumpkins.

Of course, I made treats - giant ginger cookies & caramel apples.

I have finally found a recipe for caramel that uses honey instead of corn syrup and I love it. I have made lost of caramel in the last week, because it's been several years since I've had any. Oh my. Next week, I may not even wear the same dress size if this keeps up.
I'm not even kidding.

A good time was had by all, I think - friends and family alike.

And also, there was that baby nephew of mine.

He's so cute. Obviously, his Uncle Chris thinks so too.

We lined up the best, most gruesome tools we could find.

The carnage was incredible.

The results? Probably the best pumpkins ever.

I love the girly looking pumpkin in the front.

I always love to hear the tale of your pumpkin massacre :D

And I'd love the caramel recipe. I'm not crazy about the one I've made in the past.
