Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . But Not a Pie to Eat!

Yes, I love Halloween.
(The smell of the burnt pumpkins and the candy concoction in your sack?
Ahh.....absolute heaven).
And this Halloween was especially fun because my so
n finally "gets" the trick-or-treating thing.
Plus,it was great taking
him around in jeans and a t-shirt! (Has it ever been that warm before?)
I dressed him in a warm doggie costume, but I don't think he needed it.

My husband gave up on any real costume and wore his "I'm a Shark" t-shirt, complete with drawn dorsal fin on the back.

I wore Halloween socks.

But we had chili and br
ead "bones" for dinner (perfect for little dogs and courtesy of my mom) and then went to trick-or-treat with some cousins.

We also carted our carved pumpkins around in the car with us so we could light them on Halloween night at our final destination
. (Though we have lit them since on our own porch....and will until they die).
(And who knows... maybe they'll just get replaced by some of our uncarved pumpkins that I'll eventually do Thanksgiving carvings on).
Many of you have seem my pumpkins already, but I'll post them here as well, along with my husband's "Foreclosed" Haunted House pumpkin.

(My husband's scary foreclosure pumpkin)

(My Twilight movie pumpkin - I tend to do things that are currently popular at the time on my pumpkins. This one I did on a whim and started on the pattern after 7:00 and had the whole thing finished before midnight).

(My witch and cauldron pumpkin actually took longer than the Twilight pumpkin, carving-wise.)
