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!
