Scavenger Hunt Sunday Snapshot -- Pumpkin Edition

Today we went to Auntie J's to carve pumpkins.
At first, Sunflower was a little skeptical at the request to touch the gunky stuff...Mommy wasn't doing it.
But then she decided it might be a little fun, though Daddy did end up doing most of it.
So since they were all busy playing safely with knives, I decided it was a great time to do my Scavenger Hunt.  In a quest to find balance and to organize my photos better, I had ignored it all week, hoping I'd have the will power to just skip a week.  But since I had nothing else to do...

Macro/Close-Up:

Found Texture:
Certainly if you take away the texture on the pumpkin, it would still be round.  These were very juicy pumpkins.

 Tree:
This is the Kent Weakley tree...at night.   Okay...maybe not. 

Finally, the pumpkins were finished.
They chose creations that didn't take much skill at pumpkin carving.  Frankenstein and His Bride.

Huckleberry chose a castle and a catapult.  He did a fine job on his pumpkin all by himself and no one lost any blood.

Cover:
Sunflower had trouble putting the cover back on the pumpkin, but no worries, it'll be there for Monday.

Home:
We are so thankful Auntie J and Uncle M opened their lovely home for pumpkin carving.  We are also very glad to have relatives so close to our own home, because family is what makes a house a home.  Now if we'd been there a few weeks before, I would have had a more creative "seeing faces in strange places" to share that week:
As we left, I found one more...not so pumpkin related...macro.
Ladybug, Ladybug, fly away home.  That is what we did.

I hope you have a fantastic Sunday.  Check out the other Sunday Snapshots and Hunt Photos!

Ahhhh...I love it! I literally love all the pictures...I can't even comment on just one or two of them. They are all so good.

Oh, but I'll try.

The way Oak is looking at Sunflower melts my heart.

Those pumpkins are so creative. I love the nuts and bolts...how did you think of that?

A yellow ladybug...too cute. :)

And I love the house...yellow and white trim outside and inside...my favorite.

Great shots, it looks like everyone had fun carving pumpkins! I love the macro shot!

Love all of these, especially your tree! So creative and I love your use of space.

Also adore Frankenstein and his bride and the use of accessories. The catapult and the castle were quite creative too, bet it looks neat lit-up.

And such a sweet little lady and lavender shot at the end! What a fun post!

Loving the whole set Cedar!! The one for cover is too cute & I am smitten with that old phone. We have one- but I just never thought to photograph it. Came out great!

Rose said...

Gorgeous photos! You found such creative ways to work the theme into pumpkin carving. Love the old phone, too! That's awesome that you have family close to you. We recently moved closer to family again and are enjoying it.
