We had big plans for Halloween ... plans that included a LOT of relaxing and taking it very easy. However, starting with the tub that would not hold water AT ALL and then moving on to the leak under the kitchen sink ... let's just say the house had other plans!
By the time we were done with all of that (or, should I say, HUBBY was done with all of that), our time was seriously limited!
We had planned to go to my in-law's house for trick or treating (our street is NOT very conducive to such things) and a pizza party. But first we had pumpkins to carve!
Now, my man is a jack-o-lantern GENIUS! He can carve a seriously good pumpkin. We actually have a BOOK of stencils ... a book that could NOT be found this year.
So I did what any good wife would do.
I googled it!
Sadly, short of giving out info I was not willing to part with or money I was even LESS willing to part with, the choices were severely limited!!!
We did find this guy though ...
And, ya know, it's the GREAT PUMPKIN!!!
Which is good since it's the ONLY one we had time to carve!
And that is OK, because we had more important things to think about ...
We had one very sweet puppy to groom
And one ultra cute mouse to primp
And even though they REFUSED to pose politely ...
... and the camera refused to cooperate so that I could get something - ANYTHING - better to show you, we still had a blast.
They loved trick or treating.
They LOVED getting loved on by grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
They loved the good food at Grandma's house.
And they LOVED being the belles of the ball.
So, all in all, it was a very good Halloween ...
...even though we did not get even one single grape tootsie roll pop.
And that my friends, is just stinkin wrong!
