Happy Halloween!

'When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam, may luck be yours on Halloween!
~unknown

Well they have celebrated Halloween a little early with parties at school and last night we carved pumpkins. Grace designed her own on paper and Daddy carved hers just like she drew. Will was interested in the cleaning process but had no interest in touching the innards of the pumpkin. We have one ginormous pumpkin(truly the largest we've ever had, unfortunately I didn't get a picture of it after it was carved and lit). In the below pic Grace's is the mad pumpkin on the right and Will's is on the left.
We have lots of weekend fun ahead starting with Dan and I going to the Wisconsin-Purdue football game Saturday. GO Purdue! In the afternoon we'll all be attending a neighborhood Halloween party for kids and adults and going trick or treating tomorrow night. We're hoping the weather cooperates. Buzz Lightyear (Will) and our mermaid(Grace) can't wait for the festivities to start. Have a very safe and fun weekend!!!

Talk about talent! Even those pumpkins are perfect! Gail, thanks for your sweet comment. I remember last spring your noticing my attempts at texture. I have to tell you your rustic was the best fall one I've seen.

Great pics, have a wonderful Halloween. Can't wait to see the trick or treaters in their costumes!
I am thinking the girls might have to go in their winter coats if it gets any colder here, brrr!!LOL!

Super Mommy said...

Love Grace's expression...we feel the same way...the girls didn't want to carve this year because the inside is so gross!

Your pumpkins came out perfect!
