For family night tonight we carved pumpkins. It never seems like they last very long once they're carved so we'll see if they make it to Halloween.

Jack-o-lantern
While Michelle was carving she said, "I think this is the first time I've been able to carve all by myself." I think she's right. Last year we didn't do them because I was in Utah with my Kitty who had been hit by a car (see post about summer) and the year before, I don't think we did them. How does the time fly by so quickly?

Rick was all about the pumpkin power tool. Sadly, a double A battery doesn't last long.

I think Brandon would rather be doing homework.

By Friday I'm sure my Kitty's whiskers will be wilted, Rick's Wolf will look more like a rat and Michelle and Brandon's will look more like Grandma and Grandpa with their dentures out.
Happy Halloween!

You are so funny!!! If you put vaseline on the parts that you carved, it helps it stay fresh (but never near an open flame Ü)

Too late, they're already caving in.

I feel really left out! I had no idea that you had a blog. So fun to see your carving and your cruise pictures.
