Halloween is so much fun, and I really miss living in an actual neighborhood with actual trick-or-treaters. Apparently it's a common rule that if you have small children and live in an apartment complex you must find friends who live in a neighborhood and trick-or-treat with them and their children. Not a single trick-or-treater last night.. but that didn't stop me from buying a GOOD bag (we're talking twix and resee's pumpkins-kind-of-good-bag) of candy for my hopefully trick-or-treaters. Ahh tis a shame Thomas and I will have to consume the entire bag ourselves. so. sad. (and excuse me while I go find my running shoes.. )
Luckily I can still carve a pumpkin right?!
Well to be honest, I really do it for these bad boys..
Thomas on the other hand takes pumpkin carving seriously. As evident by this year.. and last year, there's thought and strategy involved and I love it. Even if he did make a mess of my kitchen.. ;)
But honestly just look at how simple minded (and overly happy) my pumpkin is in comparison... hence why mine is in the coveted first photo spot for this post.. I knew I'd be out shined! But again, I remind you.. I do this for the seeds. ;)
Seriously? If that's not proof of some killer pumpkin carving skills and patience, here's his pumpkin from last year..
Skills I tell you.
