Pumpkin carving

This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.

I am gonna make this a tradition, no matter where I am. It was so much fun! I must say I’m quite satisfied with the result too. I think my biggest problem was that I drew on the pumpkin by hand copying a tiny tiny picture on a paper on the side.

When I found out that we were gonna carve pumpkins today I immediately started googling for inspiration. I don’t know if I’ve told people this, but I love wolves (and polar bears, but they aren’t exactly Halloween-y), so I found a really cool one. It looked complicated but I am ambitious and accepted the challenge. It turned out it was very easy and I was done first.

I had a few ideas and after consulting with the kids they thought the wolf would be the coolest. The boy took one of my designs and I helped him draw on the pumpkin. I liked his finished pumpkin the best, it was soo cool! The girl wanted to take one of my ideas at first as well, but changed her mind and made a Minnie Mouse instead. It turned out really cute!

My tooth has been pretty okay today, the painkillers take away most of the pain, but I’m still sore and it’s strenuous to eat. I can’t tell if it’s going in the right direction yet because of the antibiotics, but I hope it will be better soon.

I spent my morning down in Del Mar at a brunch place with Lovisa and Emma and it was very nice! It was the first time meeting Emma and it was about time, she’s been here for a month now. I had carrot cake pancake, deeelicious! We talked for one and a half hour and then I had to pick up the kids from school.

After school we just had time for snacks and then I had to drive the girl to soccer practice and when me and the boy got home we did homework and then he had a playdate and pretty much right after that I had to go and pick up the girl again. A lot of driving…

Tomorrow’s halloween and I feel like a little kid, I’m really excited!!
