Pumpkin Carving on Halloween

 I am only a few days behind posting pictures of our Halloween.

We have had four pumpkins sitting on our front stoop for a few weeks. Almost every day Molly would ask when we were going to carve them. Each time I had to tell her we would do it on Halloween. So finally when the day arrived, they got right to business early that morning.
 The porch wouldn't have been first pick as the place to carve pumpkins but they had already gotten started before I knew what was going on. It was also starting to rain so I guess it ended up being as good a place as any.  At least I didn't have those pumpkin guts in my house.
 Peezy escaped onto the porch to see what was going on. She is an indoor cat who really wants to go outside so she got a little outside time while the kids were out there carving.
 Here is Henry's creation. He wanted to make his barfing. YUCK
 Here is Ian's.
 Molly's pumpkin was drawn by Ian but carved by Mom.

Sophie tried doing some words on her pumpkin. "Something Wicked This Way Comes".

 Fun times carving pumpkins. I then had four pumpkin's seeds to clean and toast. We will be eatting those for quite a while!

 We weren't all that creative as far as Halloween costumes go. I didn't sew or buy anything for their costumes. They just raided the dress up clothes or costumes from previous years. It was a good thing Henry still fit into his skeleton costume.
 Out of all the princess dresses we have around this is the one Molly decided to wear for Trick or Treating.
 Ian was Harry Potter for about the 5th time.  The robe is still working as a costume and he has a great Harry Potter wand and glasses so why be anything else.
 My cat loving girl decided to be a black cat. The ears and tail were the only pieces of costume I purchased this year. We were going to try to make them but when you have a coupon for 50% off at Michaels why bother.
 Here they are all ready to head out trick or treating. Sophie actually sat at home to hand out candy while they others went around our neighborhood.

Plenty of sweets came home so all were happy!

We had a great Halloween. Molly can't wait for next year!
