Happy Halloween!!!!!

After procrastinating all week, I finally pysched myself up to carve the two pumpkins that Daniel had bought a couple of weeks ago. Of course he helped me too and had to whip the camera out. He is really trained about what is bloggable, and always runs to get the camera when he sees something he thinks I might want to blog about,,ha! Thanks, Baby No! I wasn't that hungry that I would eat that!!!! Just a goofy shot! And this is in our little workshop in the basement. My sweet hub made this work table for me and it was the perfect spot to carve the pumpkins.
When the kids were little we made the usual scary or goofy jack-o-lantern faces on our pumpkins. Now that is just Daniel and me, I am a little more creative. Since we have the spider web theme on the front porch.
I decided to carve spiders on my pumpkins. So one is a male and one is a female. Daniel also drilled different size holes all around the back and on the lid. He bought these really cool stobe lights that run off batteries to put in them. They look awesome!

Tonight we are going to sit out on the front porch and wait for the trick or treaters. At the old house we never had many trick or treaters as our road was so busy. At the new house we should have a lot of those sweeties. Mom said they always have alot of them as we live on a circle and there is a new subdivision behind us which has alot of children. So we are excited!

Later today I am going to post my dress up picture as Pea over at Pea's Corner is going to have a Halloween party at her blog. Make sure you stop by there and say BOO!!!
Have a safe Halloween!

Looks like you found the spider webs too! I love your pumpkins. Last year we were creative, but this year we just did faces. Saber had to eat some pumpkin guts while we were carving! Yuck!Living in the country we don't have many trick or treaters, but who knows we may beat our record of 6 kids last year! LOL

I tried to leave a comment on this post yesterday, but blogger ate it, I think. Anyway, love the jack-o's! Very spooky cool! You have a sweet hubby to help you like he does! Hope you had a great Halloween.

I was a scrooge(is that appropriate for Halloween?) and didn't do much decorating at all. We don't have any trick or treaters since we leave off the main road down a dirt drive. Had candy just in case our nieces and nephews came by(Dh's brothers kiddies) but they didn't so just fixed them a bag.

Great decorations! You've trained Daniel well in the capturing-it-on-camera-for-the-blog department! It looks wonderful!
