Ellie the Gourd Girl

This little slice of randomness isn't actually so random after you visit KathyB at The World According to Me.

The young woman in this photo, taken 5 years ago, is actually Sarah, the new young adult in our household. So she was 13 at the time she named, dressed and cared for this gooseneck pumpkin, affectionately referred to as "Ellie the Gourd Girl." Although the kids probably think she went to Gourd Heaven, what they don't know is that Ellie ended up peeled, sliced, boiled, mashed and eaten, topped with a dollop of whipped topping.



You decide.

  1. I feel so much better about Emily knowing that your lovely daughter turned out so well :)

    We actually carted that stupid piece of fruit all over town yesterday... and got some strangel looks and unfortunate commentary to go along with it :)
