Alan and I had a super fun weekend with our family and friends. Patrick and Elizabeth came in town on Friday night and we celebrated Patrick's birthday with my whole family and had a great time catching up. On Saturday we all tailgated together on FIJI Island before the game.
Elizabeth and Patrick
Wyatt and Caitlin came in town too and it was super fun getting to hang out with them :)
Maggie stopped by our tailgate too for a little while as she was making her way throughout campus...such a fun day!
On Sunday, Alan and I decided we were long overdue for some pumpkin carving, but not too late since we still had one more day until Halloween! Here are our pumpkins before:
During...Alan's whole family got involved!
Mitchell said that Alan, Katie, and I "cheated" since we used a pattern on our pumpkins, that's a pretty harsh word, what do you think?
Alan was the last to finish, but I will say I do think that his pumpkins looked the best!
Finished! From left to right is: Alan's, mine, Katie's, and Mitchell's
They all looked so great lit up once it got dark!
And one last treat that I'll share with you if you decide to do a little pumpkin carving yourself is to save the seeds, rinse and dry them, lay them on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with Lawry's seasoning salt and garlic powder, and bake at 400 for 10 minutes, delish!
