Pumpkin picking and Halloween party! :: Thursday, November 3, 2011

Sorry for the long gap between entries. This last week and a half has been very hard for my entire family.
Unfortunately, my Uncle Steve past away last Monday, October 24th at 4:20pm.

He was one of the most amazing people I have ever been privileged enough to meet and know. He could make you laugh until you cried and would give you the shirt off his back if you ever needed it! He was my Daddy's best friend from birth and was my closest uncle.
R.I.P. Uncle Steve. You will be missed greatly.

Things are just recently getting back to normal, so I wanted to throw up this post now while I had the time.

This will be a picture heavy with not much text...

Last Sunday, my friend Bruce and I went pumpkin picking. We had tons of fun. Here's the pictures I prepared from that day.

I tried to have a more artistic effect. :)

We went to a local farm to pick out pumpkins. It was such a beautiful day and there were so many nice pumpkins to choose from. BUT, I am a firm believer that the ugly ones need love too!! So I chose the ugliest one! He's got warts.
And, of course Bruce had to carry my pumpkin for me. I had been carrying, but Bruce took so very long to choose his pumpkin, I couldn't hold mine anymore!

Saturday night, we all went out and celebrated Halloween just like my uncle would have wanted it (My Aunt and him always won the costume contests! They loved Halloween!)

A group of my friends and I went out clubbing for Halloween. Only 3 of us dressed up, though T_T BUTTT~ Bruce won 2nd place in the costume contest and the prize was $150 (He was Micheal Myers from the horror movie 'Halloween'!!! So, he paid for all of our drinks!
It was loads of fun but Sunday was rough...

Sunday night, we carved pumpkins

This was the first time I've ever carved my own pumpkin! Some advice though... the warts are SO HARD! Even big strong Bruce was having trouble carving through some spots!

FINALLY! I made apple pie from scratch last night. I LOVE baking SO much, so this was very therapeutic for me.

SOO delicious! I've gained 6 lbs in one week from stress and over eating, but my diet is going to have to wait until the pie is all gone. Hopefully I can get everything under control by then! :)

Phew! OK, I think I'm all caught up now.

Aw I'm so sorry for you loss, I understand how much it hurts to lose a close family member. 

This year I didn't even eat any sweets or anything, and last year I didn't either---I'm actually quite happy because now I won't binge eat! XD;; that used to happen all of the time, but now I'm conquering these inner demons of mine, even though all of your food looks so yummy T o T I am tempted~

I love your outfit! Really cute!

Thank you for your kind words.

I didn't have any Halloween sweets this year, but I couldn't help myself with the pie. Since I've been on my diet, I haven't baked at all! So, it was really nice to finally get back to it. 
There's nothing wrong with it every once in awhile, and it's not really the pie's fault I fell off the side of the world with my diet right now xD (I also haven't exercised for a week and a half... D:)

I'm sorry for the loss. It is hard to lose someone so close.

But I need to say, you look awesome (you all do!)
And the pumpkins are really really great and I wanna try the cake!

I know how hard it can be to loose a family member, especially one who is very close to you. I hope you and your family will find continuous strength in his memories and comfort. Your from scratch apple pie looks absolutely delicious. I mean it! And good for you, to show the ugly pumpkin some love!

 We will. It gets easier each day, but still there's not a day that goes by that I don't remember and can't believe it. Thanks!

The pie is quite yummy :)

 Thank you! There are many good memories. :)

We did have an awesome time! Halloween is my favorite holiday (even more than Christmas!) I think everywhere should celebrate it!

Never seen a real pumpkin!? Wow!
Normal pumpkins aren't hard to cut at all, but the warty ones are! The warts are actually sugar deposits! So, even though mine is ugly, it's still sweet! xD

Thank you! I felt kind of sexy on Halloween 8D I don't usually! And, Bruce was beating boys away all night! But being with him, it wasn't so hard! He's huge!

You're so cute! Love your pumpkins. We've never gone through loads of effort with pumpkins but I love looking at them.

Sorry to hear about your Uncle. I can understand how you must feel. Big hugs.

Thank you!
This is my first time carving my own pumpkin! I usually let my pops carve mine.

Thank you for your kind words! <3
