Pumkin Carving Family Fun!

This is my favorite time of year. The air begins to feel crisp, the leaves start changing into these amazing colors, and last but not least it's time for Halloween! My daughter loves to get the decorations out and have scary movie family night. We finally had our pumpkin carving night. Mckenna drew a design that she had her dad carve. Her favorite part is pulling out all of the gewy seeds. Most important and my favorite thing about carving a pumpkin is toasting the seeds. Don't throw those seeds away!
Line a pan with foil. Preheat the oven to 275. Toss them in olive oil. I like to sprinkle garlic salt, pepper, and some parmesan cheese. It takes about 30-40 minutes for the seeds to toast. They are so yummy!

When we had our snack, and the pumkin was finished, we decided we needed a picture. We are trying to document our memories more:-)
