Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween to all of you!

Eric and Hayden carved the pumpkins last night. Sadly, we only have one son left that is interested in carving the pumpkins, but we do have so many great memories of all our little boys busy out in the garage with Daddy carving pumpkins. And someday when they are older, they will be the fathers carving pumpkins and making memories with their own little ones! I picked up the lid of one of the pumpkins and smelled it and oh, it brings back such great memories, mostly of my Daddy and the anticipation I had to get dressed up and get free candy! We all love roasted pumpkin seeds, so we saved the seeds and will roast them in the next few days. Julieann at My Daily Life as Wife and Mother has the recipe and directions on roasting pumpkin seeds.

Tonight we are having a bit of a dinner party; we are planning on having our traditional Chili and Cornbread for dinner. Mackenzie and Brittany are going to come over and help Eric and I answer the door & hand out candy. Later we will all watch an old scary Vincent Price movie. Grayson is having about four kids come over to eat with us. Hayden is going to have a friend or two for dinner and then go trick-or-treating with the neighbor boy and his family. I think this will be Hayden's last year to trick-or-treat. I still don't know what he wants to be, he said he will figure out his costume today after school. My kids are pretty creative with the costumes they come up with, they amaze me. We have a small trunk full of old costumes, so he will be able to throw something together pretty fast.

Have a fun day!

Sharon, what a special time. I remember those days. Rian leaves for NJ so he is carving mine before he leaves. He was always my carver. it is so special for him to return a young man and still love it.

I love the pictures and sounds as though your family will be having fun.
I know it must be a little bittersweet as your children grow too big for certain things...although mine are still pretty young, they are growing as fast as lightening! Your son still looks like he totally enjoying the pumpkin carving, though! :)
