Happy Halloween!

Besides Christmas, Halloween is my kids second favorite holiday! All the candy, costumes, parties... how could they not love it? Last night we carved our pumpkins. Well I should say Eddie carved them. You see, Connor was happy just drawing a traditional pumpkin face and cutting that out. But Eddie said, "lets look on the internet and see what cool designs they have."The boys thought this was a great idea. It really isn't hard. Your find a design, tape it to your pumpkin and follow the outline by poking holes. They cut out the design that was transfered to the pumpking. The problem is it is time consuming. Zachary was all into it but Connor lost interest and watched "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" instead.
I give you our Halloween pumpkins! Skeleton and Scooby Doo. Can you guess who picked what?
I have to get moving. I have to be at school for the fourth and first grade Halloween parties this afternoon. Zachary has been fever free for over 24 hours and went to school today. He is so relieved he can go trick or treating tonight.

Before I go, I wanted to give a special shout out to Eddie's sister Marybeth and her husband Kit. They both have stopped smoking! It has been six weeks! Congrats to you both!
