Our Little Pumpkins

During our trip to Norman, Oklahoma, earlier this week, our family was invited to participate in an international pumpkin-carving contest.  Students of the University of Oklahoma and their “host” families (including Dan’s brother, Cory, and sister-in-law, Amanda) allowed us to share in an all-American Frito-pie and pumpkin party.  International students from Korea, Japan and England joined together to experience a bit of American culture while learning to properly gauge a gourd.  Good times and prizes were had by all!

We had a great time together, even though we didn’t get balloon animals. We got these animals on our faces:  I got a leopard, Abby got a dragon, and Callie got a tiger. I’ll write some more after we get more pictures. Peace! -Emma
