Happy Halloween! Pumpkin Pictures!

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Good Morning!
Happy Halloween! emoticon emoticon
I cheated and uploaded the group picture yesterday! But here are even more!

Here is my pumpkin. I had a witches castle picked out, but was having major issues tracing it and like a 2 year-old, threw a tantrum and ripped the paper off the pumpkin and threw it in the trash. So ghosts it was!

Here is Emily's pumpkin...a bat in the moon!

And Chad's pumpkin...which we all agreed was just "freaky scary"!

And Preston's pumpkin...he wanted to be a witch for Halloween...couldn't get him to understand it was a girl's costume. Which, ya know, really is NOT right! LOL!

Our group photo!

Then here are just some random pictures I took while we were carving our pumpkins! I told Preston to put duct tape on his mouth...he half listened...see!

Here's my cat too, keeping an eye on everything...LOL! (This is not surgery cat, that is hubby's cat.)

I hope you all have a wonderful Halloween Hump Day! Our trick-or-treat has been moved to costume pic's won't be until next week.
Have a great day!
Hugs to you all!!

    Beth.. everyone did a great job! Love your little family! You are the best mom~!

We too used a pattern and my 11 yr old did the tracings and "most" of the carving.. I helped some... we did 3 patterns on 1 big pumpkin because they were so expensive to buy a pumpkin. Like 4 bucks each.

    The bat in the moon is quite ingenious. It shows the profile so well in the group picture. Very creative.

Chad's is FREAKY Scary, just what one would expect of his age group. Preston should be able to go as whatever he wants too, if he likes the costume why not. Girls love trucks openly these days, i guess the best compromise is a warlock but i never liked wars. HUGS, the things Mommy's have to figure out are endless. HUGS dear SF Pat in Maine. 65 degrees and sunny on October 31st-There was Thunder is the forecast but so far not happening. Enjoy your day Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    as everyone is saying so I will chime: SPOOKTACULAR!!

i think it was too warm for us but our pumpkins pretty much rotted right after we carved them. But, I did make some pretty cool Day of Dead cookies I could post.

and maybe next time let Preston be a witch but tell him boys are called Warlocks?

    Spooktacular! - Nikki taught me this word yesterday!
Both my girls voted for your pumpkin! They really liked the ghosts and, don't worry, I didn't tell them the tantrum story behind it! (I think I would have done exactly the same with you and I have no pregnancy hormones to put the blame on!)
I vote for Emily's! It's just WOW! Masterpiece!
We're still trying to figure out the details in Chad's pumpkin but we all agreed it's scary!
As for Preston's, it looks like an evil wizard to me! Which is a boy's costume!
I hope you all have a great time today!
Happy Halloween!

    Great pumpkin carving.

Two year olds have minds of their own - don't they?

I guess he wanted the Ghosts!

    Happy Halloween!!! Your pumpkins ROCK! Finally got mine done last night at 9:45. Needless to say no pic. We picked up two of these cheap carvers and they were horrible to work with. They turned out okay though, not spectacular, but good enough:)

Oh, that kitty is a cutie pie & thanks for sharing the pics. Chad giving you the "enough with the pictures already mom" shot. LOL

    Cool pumpkins you forgot deep breaths while working on yours. Love the duct tape. I will always remember us calling you motor mouth. Randall is wandering were his pumpkin is he got left out again poor car. Looks like you all had so much fun things you will remember doing with your kids and they will remember you for it. Good job you are a good mom. emoticon
