After church we went out to lunch to celebrate my Dad's birthday. We had a great lunch with my parents, siblings and grandparents. Most of my Dad's presents had to do with the Texas Rangers.
After lunch we came home and watched the end of the Cowboy game (we had been watching it at the restaurant). We were both sad at how pitifully they played, so to cheer ourselves up we put in season 2 of 'The Big Bang Theory'. While watching the show we decided to carve our pumpkin that has been sitting on our table for over a week.
My husband does not like to get messy, so of course I did the dirty job.
This is a lot harder than it looks!
We had no clue what we were doing, but we had seen pictures online of what we wanted to do. And we didn't have any pumpkin carving tools, we only had what was in our kitchen. We thought that using a cheese grater would work, well DO NOT TRY IT!!! It doesn't work! Joel broke our cheese grater, but we got a really good laugh out of it.
Here is our finished product! I think it turned out pretty good considering what we had to work with. (Last year we did a Dallas Cowboy pumpkin, so this year it was time to show the Rangers a little love)
And it looks really cute on our patio!
Like I said it was a great Sunday... I had almost forgotten what it was like to spend a weekend with my husband! Now we are going to finish the night watching the Rangers when game 4 of the World Series!!
