Earlier this week, I carved pumpkins. Ava was supposed to help out, but she got one look at the pumpkin guts and decided she wanted nothing to do with it. Note to self: whoever picks out the pumpkin pattern must be the one to carve the pumpkin. For the record, I picked out the face, Scott picked out the spooky house. Guess which one took twice as long to carve? That's right, Scott...next time, YOU get to carve the more detailed one!
I thought it would be fun to roast pumpkins seeds for the first time, too - but I think I cooked them a little too long...they were extra crunchy and a little darker than they should be. Oh well, my domestic goddess-ness had pretty much been maxed out for the evening!
Today was a pretty good day. Like most Sundays, it was full of all sorts of activities, and before we knew it, it was time to hand out candy and then head out to Great-Grandma's house to celebrate her birthday, and also do a little candy begging ourselves.
Practicing to be a SCARY monster!
Somehow she managed to lock herself in her room with Spanky and Darla. Notice the real happy expression on all of their faces... the dogs are looking at each other, like "Oh crap..."
Our first stop was at Grandma and Grandpa Goers' house.
And then off to Great Grandma's...
Happy Birthday, Great Grandma!
Stocking up on candy...
Playing well with cousin Calleigh
Twin ladybugs! (Cousins Jenna and Ava)
Intrigued by a game on my phone...
By the time we left there, our nap-free ladybug was melting down. We were already an hour past bedtime, and boy, she let us know!
Now that Halloween's done, we're getting ready for Christmas...check out the reindeer antlers!
Oh, FYI, there won't be a post for a few weeks...I'm heading to Europe this Friday. Hungary and Austria, here I come! I'm sure I'll have some great pics to post from that trip.
