OHIO Pumpkin

Last night Kenneth and I went to a Fall potluck at a friend's house.  We shared warm soups, tasty chips and dip and lots of sweet desserts and candy!  We ended the night by carving pumpkins - wonderful Fall tradition!   When my sister and I were kids we started out drawing with Sharpie markers instead of carving pumpkins, once we got older we upgraded to actual carving.  Since I really don't like the feel of pumpkin 'innards' (when I peel and cut squash for recipes it irritates my skin a little - it's not itchy, but they feel weird for a few hours after) I opted to draw the Ohio University mascot, Rufus the bobcat, on our pumpkin.   The whole evening was a lot of fun - I love Fall!
