Happy Halloween!

We’d been looking forward to Halloween for lots of reasons, but mainly because it was the first as a family. In preparation for All Hallow’s Eve, Russ suggested we head to a pumpkin patch! So we headed to a great one…

I ain't no jive turkey, y'all!

The weather was gorgeous and we loved that there were rows and rows of pumpkins and displays for the little man to see.

Look, Mommy and Daddy, I made a friend!

Does this thing go any faster?

Sure, there's plenty of room, Daddy! Come on in!

It was all very official!

The next day was carving day! A Jack-o-Lantern and yummy baked seeds were a waitin’! Russ got right to work.

He's a master with the knives! Ooooo ahhhhhh!

While Russ carved, Xion had his own fun activity going on. Something had to happen with the pumpkin!

Oooooo, this feels nice on my hands!

The kitties were clearly uninterested while Mr. Pickles tended to his artwork.

I see great things taking shape here, Mommy and Daddy!

All done! Ta da!!

Pumpkin was everywhere so this little guy headed straight for the tub. Meanwhile, Woz was busy making some seasoned pumpkin seeds. Just add some oil, a pinch of salt, and spices (we used the Trader Joe’s South African Smoke) for 12 minutes at 350 degrees and you are all set. Yummmmmmmmy!

Warm and crunchy!

We were super excited for Trick or Treat and hoped we’d get more kids come to our door than we had last year. It wasn’t hard to beat since last year we didn’t get even one! 😦 We did get some this year (16 in fact!), so we consider that a success!

Xion was all decked out and was ready to greet the ghouls and goblins each time our doorbell rang.

Our little calf went mooooooooo.

Pumpkin slippies for Pickle feet.

We wanted to go all out on the Halloween decorations but, wow, are they ever expensive! So, Woz found some super inexpensive ones at the dollar store. They did just fine.

The Walking Dead could be filmed here. Zombieeeeees!

Those who didn't escape the zombies.

And of course, our Jack-o-Lantern that we fondly named Edgar. He actually stayed lit all through the night and well into the next day!

Edgar the Happy.

Cards from Aunt Deedle and Uncle Dave for Xion’s first Halloween. πŸ˜€


Waiting for the trick or treaters!

Daddy and his little love.

Does this outfit make my cheeks look big, Mommy?

So ended yet another wonderful Woztober. Oh, Woz did have a great 35th birthday, too! So many cards, Facebook happy birthday wishes, and some wonderful gifites. She is looking forward to her hot and cold massage (and facial!) that Russ got for her. Those are scheduled for later this month. Long live, Woztober! Here is one of the gorgeous presents of the year from Dave and Papo. A one of a kind wooden treasure box made by Elise ofΒ Dark Fairie Creations.

Once upon a time...

And they lived happily ever after, too. πŸ˜€
