All Hallows Eve

         Happy Halloween Everyone!  Since I'm a big girl now and have to work on weekdays (even if they are partial holidays), we celebrated halloween this weekend, so here's a bit of my holiday!  Nic and Lindley went as PopEye and Olive while I was Little Red Riding Hood (complete with wolf Yuma by my side and a basket in hand) and Vlad went as a monkey or big teddy bear if you didn't see his tail...
          Monday we carved pumpkins together, but since the weather was poor we couldn't go pick them out so we settled for grocery store pumpkins and my kitchen table instead of my porch.  But we began the evening by baking pumpkin cookies with cinnamon and nutmeg.  Spending an evening being silly and creative with my friends is the perfect kind of night for me!  After cleaning out the pumpkins and drawing our designs, the boys finished carving while Lindley and I toasted the seeds in olive oil with pumpkin pie spice.  Our finished products, though not as perfect as we might have hoped, turned out so fun and festive anyway!

    The carved pumpkins look pretty good too!
