Grandpa thought he'd try some "Big Mac" pumpkin seeds for the garden this year.
These bad boys were HUGE!!
Here's Addi demonstrating the size of her pumpkin by comparing it with an apple.
We had to pull out the big guns to carve this thing.
reee Reee REEE REEE!
(you know...the scary shrieking sound effect when someone is getting stabbed)
This pumpkin had a surprisingly small number of seeds.
Finished product: designed by Addi, carved by Mom for safety.
Yes the front porch is covered in outdoor carpet because 3 year-old Randall walked across the wet porch cement in his cowboy boots.
I went a little crazy with our costumes this year, They consumed my life for almost a month. We had a real photo shoot and I'll post those pictures when I get them but in the meantime here are a few snapshots from the family party.
Introducing Miss White Rabbit, yes that is a real clock, yes it works, yes that is the correct time.
Yes, those shoes are covered with fur(ry stuff).
It's hard to see my hat in this picture but it's fabulous!
(My friend Meg and I toiled for hours on it)
King of Hearts
(as you see I ran out of steam for Randall's costume but he didn't mind a bit)
