Till Next Year Halloween - muah!

This year's Halloween was an awesome reminder of how much I love it!

Carving pumpkins!

Scooping out the guts!

Using those little teenie tiny carving tools to make up a design in the side of a pumpkin -- while wearing your costume!


Setting up a scary scene for the trick-o-treaters!  (no dogs were harmed in the making of this scene, although she does put on a good "help I'm in jail" face, doesn't she?)

Finding new ways to use an old mask to scare up the light on our front step.  Spooky!

Lighting up the pumpkins -- mine was a haunted house with bats, full moon, and clouds.

Mr. Happy whipped up what he called a traditional scowl face.  He seriously had this guy carved up and ready to scare before I had even finished scooping out my pumpkin's guts.

All in all, we had more trick-o-treaters than we thought, we have fun carving pumpkins together, we played Halloween themed games while sitting in front of the fire, and I must say that we were all exhausted in the end.

Even the pup crashed out on her own dog bed by 7:30 -- unheard of!

Hope you had a hauntingly good time this weekend!

Now that it's Monday again, I am reflecting on the fact that it is now November - YOWZA!

Wow, you guys had a lot of fun! That last picture made me laugh out loud!

@Augie and Ti, I still can't believe she held still for the snap. Seriously minutes before she was trying to eat them -- and then she crashed in to sleepyland.

Sugar's got the right idea; you can make some great treats with pumpkin -- in fact I think I've got a recipe for homemade dog biscuits around here that use fresh pumpkin... talk about happy!
