pumpkin carving  This has been a busy week.  It’s one of those good but busy weeks.  We hosted guests.  I did some photo shoots, and I listened to my husband’s live concert at the local coffee shop!  (More on that later.)  I’ve been knee deep in trying to keep my house tidy and editing photos.  That combo does not work well together, for the record.


In the middle of all that busyness, I was able to get in a little creative time with the help of TXU Energy.  I was invited to attend MOMPOWER.  Several DFW bloggers got together, enjoyed some amazing food from the cooking school at Central Market, and learned some tips from professional pumpkin carver, Mathew McIntosh.  My kids were in school but I brought along my sidekick, Ethan, to carve!  We barely had enough time to finish his, so I brought my pumpkin home for the kids.

I have never carved a pumpkin.  I think it’s because I really don’t do Halloween decorations.  It’s definitely harder than you think!  Miss Emma and I attempted to make the friendliest looking pumpkin we could.  He was supposed to have 3 teeth but when you carve a little too close, well, let’s just say he already lost his first tooth.
