Halloween 2009 Festivites

Happy Halloween
from Bakery Chef
Natalie Gottwald
This year I made our Halloween costumes... more out of necessity. Nick wanted me to make him an apron, and there was extra fabric left over, so I decided to make me one too!! Then I got the hat pattern off the Internet for free. So i just needed my mad sewing skills and we were ready for Halloween. Thanks to Nick for providing the smock!!

First we celebrated Halloween by going to a birthday/Halloween party for Matt's daughter, who just turned One, so cute!! Us with the teenagers (Ben and Tara Jean).

We carved pumpkins on the 30th with some friends, this is Nick's pumpkin. Turned out to be not so scary, more of a jolly little pumpkin.
I carved mine with the fall theme in mind, and then used it for our Halloween decor, since all of mine is in Utah. We also made pumpkin seeds- turns out I am not a big fan.

The Bakery chef slaved over these pumpkin cupcakes, they were delicious!!!

Then to finish off the evening we had a few friends over for dinner in a pumpkin!!! I make this recipe every year, but i think i will tweak the recipe more to my liking. We ended playing the card game Pit, and I only won once, so it was a little disappointing. Then we opened our Veranda and watched a million people walking to Georgetown, all decked out!! It was a very memorable Halloween.
Love, the Chef Gottwalds

You really were chefs! I believed you, of course, but you had a menu to go along with it. Mmmm.
