Halloween is in two days and Jake could not be more excited about it. He keeps asking every day..."Halloween coming mama?!" This afternoon we carved our pumpkins. We had 4 to carve. One really big one, a medium sized one and two smaller ones. We made Jake clean out the gunk from the inside. It was so funny, he thought it was gross and didn't want to get his hands dirty. We had such nice weather today, we carved the pumpkins outside on our driveway. We of course used those store bought patterns to carve the pumpkins, but you know what? They work so well, and I think they all turned out great. Ok, so I only carved one and Pete did the other three, but he had fun doing it! Megan was good she just sat in her little bouncer and watched.

Tommorrow I'll be getting ready for our little Halloween party. Pete has three sisters and between the 4 of us we have 6 kids. We all live here in Tracy so last year I invited all the kids over to trick-or-treat in our neighborhood. I made snacks and stuff for everyone before we went. It was really fun so we're doing it again this year. Since I'm not working right now I think I'll try and make some fun stuff for the kids. I got stuff to make Goblin Goo...A Jello and Kool-Aide drink. I think they'll like it. I'm still trying to think of maybe one other fun thing to make for them. Haven't decided yet though.

Anyways we had a good weekend. Hope everyone else did too!

Cool pumpkins, Corey. Jake looks like he was having fun! Mike and I are carving our pumpkins tonight. We don't get many tric-or-treaters in our neighborhood, but we still enjoy the fun of Halloween! Mom

I quit carving pumpkins years ago...I am afraid I agree with Jake...I hate the goo.........Catherine usually convinces me to get one, and she does the carving and I do the cleaning and roasting of the pumpkin seeds.

I must say, your pumpkins look awesome. We never had any success at actually making a design. I am afraid we were just triangle eyes, and jagged teeth makers. One year, we just used playdoh, and didnt even carve them out!
