Saturday night we attended an old-fashioned pumpkin carving party at the Reicherts. Here are a few pictures from the evening, courtesy of host Paul Reichert. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a picture of the smiley-face pumpkin (skill level: Unrated) that Michael and did. I’ll try to take a picture of ours all lit up tonight before the pumpkin rots to death on our balcony this week. 🙂
These smiles say, “We’re just doing a smiley-face pumpkin this year. We are really here because Paul Reichert grills some fantastic burgers and baked his famous made-from-scratch carrot cake…”

Yes, Michael and I had a totally gross experience last year with two beautifully-carved pumpkins turning into Piles of Goo on our balcony.
