After losing 112 pounds in almost a year and a half, I have come to realize how very much I was missing. I may be Late to the Party, but I am doing my best to catch up in my own unique way!

And Things That Go Bump in the Night

 There's a traditional Scottish prayer:
"From ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties, and things that go bump in the night, good Lord deliver us."

Happy Halloween!  It is the night before All Saints Day and the ghosts and goblins are out, so beware.

This afternoon we picked up two of the Fab 5 from their other grandmother, came back to our house and proceeded to carve our pumpkins.  I must say they turned out rather well and we are already talking about what we will carve into our "jacks" next year.  But that is for another day.  Let me share with you our handiwork!

 Whoooo's pumpkin is this?  Olivia's.  She wanted an owl, so we put him on a tree branch. 

Our jacks together.  A pretty pair!

Oh, my goodness!  This is Carson's.  We used his hands as patterns.  SCARY!

Then it was time to get ready.  Pictures say it best!
Who are these spooky kids?

Yikes!  A very scary spider!

Looks like he's been eating more than flies!

I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore!
And the final picture is our front door.  One last hurrah for October and Halloween.  Tomorrow the turkeys come out and all the spooky stuff goes away for one more year.
 So, if you hear anything tonight at the witching hour, it won't be these 2 little goblins.  They are fast asleep, dreaming of trick or treat bags full of candy.  Goodnight, everyone!  Hope your dreams are as sweet as theirs!
