It is a big deal at our house.
We plan all year what we are going to dress up as
as a family.
I will post those pictures tomorrow.
while Monte was out of town.
and he was good with it.
Which worked out nicely since
he was outvoted anyway.
Something amazing happened this year,
wonder of all wonders,
Monte scooped the goop from his own pumpkin!
|He scooped it AFTER he had already|
carved the front, Florida boy that he is.
|Looking a little pekid. Or maybe he is|
looking meanish at me. Huh. Didn't
notice that before.
dried eggs on a plate in the sink,
to pumpkin goop.
I'm not sure he is going to be able to
read that list without gagging.
|Who are you and what did you do|
with my husband?!?
Like most things in our household,
we take carving pumpkins very seriously.
We research ideas.
We have a plan.
There is a clear winner.
|Ellie's pumpkin took the longest.|
Her efforts were rewarded.
I was going for a Pinteresty "banners and polka dots" theme.
Instead it looks like Charlie Brown's Halloween costume.
The ghost one with way too many eye holes.
|Ok, I see it now.|
The girls kept saying,
"I got a rock."
every time they looked at my pumpkin.
Monte said he was going for Mike from Monsters Inc
but I think it turned out more like a minion from Despicable Me.
Either way, it is adorable.
McDaniel has a love of whales.
This is actually the outline of a whale.
It comes across so much better lit up.
Hope everyone has a safe night of Trick or Treating!
