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!
