Better Late than Never?

Wait, don't answer that.

I know, I know, there is a time limit on Halloween posts and I've missed it. Trust me, it could be worse, I could do NaBlaBitMyFa. Imagine the posts you would get then. A picture of a wall tack is probably the most creative post I would come up. Consider yourself lucky that instead you get this image of the pre-carved pumpkins.

Don't ask

Yes, that is my husband, ladies and gents. He is 100% man. Enough said. I also have a picture of my girlfriend holding them with her husband but a) it's blurry and b) I like her so I won't post it. Aren't I nice to mention it though? Just working hard on being a good friend.

Optimus does Jack o Latern

Jack aka Optimus chose the same pattern as last year. It's a winner if you ask me.

James, James Bond

And Kamden chose the pattern I created last year. I should quit my day job, no?


This year we carved with friends because, gasp, this friend mentioned that they might not actually carve their pumpkins otherwise. This is Halloween sacrilege to me. Pumpkins will not go uncarved on my watch.

"It's time for your lobotomy, Ned" to quote Calvin.

Keeping the world safe

The boys went as Transformers this year. I love how they like to dress up as similar characters. Wonder how long it will last?

They each went Trick or Treating with their best pals and brought home enough candy for 5 kids. Honestly, we still have some from last year. I threw some of it out but just couldn't through out the good chocolate bars. Funny since we don't seem to eat them.

It was a good one. Holidays are so much fun with kids. I can't wait for Christmas.

If you are interested, aka Jack and Kamden's grandparents, more pictures can be found here.

I love that my boys dress in similar costumes too. I really wish we could get them all together for a play date.

LOVING their actions shots (and the pumpkins, too!)

Wow - you guys are great pumpkin carvers and I love, love, love the boys' costumes! It must have been such a fun time! Need I mention that your hubs has a nice set of ... ah, gourds there? LOL! Hi Kami! I've missed visiting! Hugs to you!

Ashley said...

Looks like you guys had fun. All I can say, is better you than me, I really dislike carving pumpkins, they're all slimy and stuff!

Love the theme! I also love that they aren't bloody yet. I can feel the gross costumes coming soon for our household...

those pumpkins ROCK!!!

very cool pumpkins. looks like your boys had a fun Halloween. And you are right holidays with kiddos are soooo fun

Kristin said...

Definitely better late than never and way better than posting Christmas decorations now or something. The only reason we are so done with Halloween quickly is the sugar high wears off for both us and the children and then the real monsters come out. Great pumpkins!

Jay's got quite a nice couple of ..pumpkins - OMG Kami, you crack me up.
I love the boys' costumes, and those jack-o-lanterns are wonderful! We barely squeaked out two this year...

I would post my kids pix, but my Halloween Jason was gesturing the machete in not quite a nice fashion on the resident bunny rabbit. A bit too literal for me.

LOL thats the Jay I know and love. The boys look super cute in their costumes, i forgot I never did see them in their costumes together on halloween.
