Pumpkin bust


I fear there is no hope for me. I can’t even win a pumpkin carving contest at a neighborhood Halloween party.
Maybe it was the out-dated paper I used. I should have gone with something more trendy, more contemporary, more now.
But on the bright side, my son won first place with his rendition of Sponge Bob Square Pants. We believe it was the googly eyes that did the job.

I would write more, but I am suffering from an unfortunate stomach ailment, made even more pronounced by the fact that we ate cheesy fries for lunch. I knew I was in trouble while I was in Toys R Us and got that rumbly in my tumbly.
I trotted to the nearest bathroom, which was closed for cleaning. So I sent my son in to make sure there was no one in the men’s room and made him guard the door while I did what I had to do.
I was only slightly embarrassed when I came out and found a puzzled 12-year-old boy waiting for his chance at the men’s room.
I believe I will be taking an Imodium with a Pepto Bismol chaser and heading for bed, now.

Yeah - that whole stomach thing. I've got IBS so dealt with that on a regular basis for the longest time. Not fun!! Hope you feel better!

LOVE the pumpkin! It should have won the prize for most original use of embellishments. As for the stomach thing, HUGS - I hope you are feeling much better. I've had to use the men's room at Toys R Us for that very reason... what is it about that store and sick mommas? Feel better girly.

Your pumpkin ROCKS!! She's so cute... and I'm sure no one knew the paper was outdated. Wait, you live in Utah... I take that back, someone might have known it was older paper. LOL. I would have given you the prize!

I LOVE that pumpkin. She's sassy, she's sure of herself and she has great naturally curly hair. Glad to hear DS won for the Sponge Bob Pumpkin.
Hope you are feeling better!
