On Friday I picked up my pumpkins for Halloween. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to go to the local pumpkin patch this year, so these ones just came from the grocery store.
Pretty good looking pumpkins, if I do say so myself. On Sunday afternoon I got down to carving them to turn them into jack-o-lanterns for Halloween! I decided to carve them in our living room while watching the Redskins play the Broncos (Go Skins!!). Football and pumpkin carving is a good combination for a Sunday afternoon in October.
The finished products:
I have mad pumpkin carving skills. Except not really, but I do alright. I always end up doing relatively the same thing each year with my pumpkins- a Virginia Tech one and a simple/traditional one. It works for me. I am excited for Halloween. I haven’t dressed up for it since college, but I love having all the kids come by and handing out candy.

I can probably relate this next picture to Halloween and claim we were dressing Scout up in a costume on Sunday.
But really, she just looks hilarious in a t-shirt. Especially when she sits on the couch (which is covered with a sheet in an effort to save it from dog slobber). She makes it even funnier because she walks around all mopey when she has a t-shirt on. Don’t worry, we didn’t “torture” her for long.
Do you carve pumpkins for Halloween? If so, do you do relatively the same pattern each year or do you mix it up?
Do you dress up for Halloween? Do you get many trick or treaters?
If you have pets, do you dress them up for Halloween?
