In the festive spirit of October, members of our chapter headed to a local pumpkin patch to take advantage of a special deal on pumpkins.There was one catch though...you had to take as many pumpkins as you could carry in your own hands. Our determined actives took on the challenge and worked together to bring home 33 pumpkins! With all these pumpkins we were able to spend the rest of the afternoon in the front yard carving to our hearts content. A few pumpkins were carved as traditional Halloween decorations, but a few more were a bit more creative. Some out-of-the-box designs were a cow, fish, a bowtie, and a monkey. The front of our house was so festively decorated afterwards! And we got some tasty snacks out of it too. We baked the seeds two different ways: with brown sugar and butter and with olive oil and salt. Both kinds were a hit to our hungry actives during the viewing of our house movie later that night. A few day later, we used leftover parts of the pumpkins to make delicious homemade muffins. Yummy!
