A lot of good past memories of all of our pumpkin carving parties over the past 25 years. I say 25 years because prior to the kids being born we got together with a couple family members and friends to carve pumpkins. After the kids were born it became a big event each year inviting friends and families. It grew and grew and became quite an annual event.
Each and every year as the leaves began to fall; my kids would rally around me to start getting the Halloween party stuff up for the party. Halloween and Christmas have always been two of my favorite holidays however, having my children all getting so excited about these two holidays has always made it “Oh, so very special!” They loved everything about the concept of a Pumpkin Carving Party from the get go. First, everything about it is unbelievably fun and fantastic! All their friends were coming over to their house dressed up in costume for carving pumpkins and for playing games. They got to eat Dirt Cake, Brownies, Candy, and Chips including all the soda and punch they want to drink. And none of them will forget the Haunted Hey Ride back in the field with creatures chasing them in the dark.
It was so nice to see all these children grow each and every year. In 2010 we had our last party. It was sad to say the least. The once little kids are now all grown up. I’m thankful every year about this time for all happiness we have all enjoyed during this holiday, the opportunity to share this special holiday with all our friends and their families. These Halloween pumpkin carving parties I know will live on in the hearts and memories of all these kids and someday one or more of them will do the same kind for their children.
This was our annual invitation to the party.
