It was another great Kassel Family Halloween filled with a few firsts. We started the day at Flat Branch for our traditional lunch and Great Pumpkin Ale.
After our growlers were filled, we headed home to carve our pumpkins. If you don’t have a Pampered Chef Scoop Loop, I suggest you get one. I cleaned out two pumpkins in less than ten minutes!
This was the first year that the kids carved their pumpkins all by themselves. We didn’t even help clean up the openings.
It was sad that we didn’t have to help, but also exciting because we didn’t have to help!
We spent the evening hanging out with great friends, eating tasty chili, drinking good beer, and just enjoying ourselves. For the first time, Laura did not go trick or treating and stayed home to hand out candy. It was a chilly night, but the kids still had a great time running around the neighborhood.
I realized at the end of the night that I only took one picture of the evening festivities. That’s another first. It was still a great evening spent with great friends!
