Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from two little Spidermen to YOU!!!


These pumpkins were Harvested in August from our backyard Pumpkin Patch!!!



Daddy, Nana and Moose picking Moose's first pumpkin of the year-in August...


Luke & Papa picking SP's first pumpkin of the year, after we picked these, we moved to the far right of the garden and picked a watermelon, because all the heat and hard work made us hungry. Actually we had to wait for the watermelon to chill, so we had ice cream with Oreo cookies mixed in to cool off.

Grandma and the boys coloring and carving Pumpkins in Missouri, the week of the Rodeo!!

The finished product, black marker on Reed's face, and the most lovely pumpkin I've ever laid eyes on.
This was our second year to plant a garden. Shane's prized pumpkin patch started producing like crazy in August. We had pumpkins everywhere. While most of you were at the pool or grilling out, we were decorated for Fall in the heat of summer. Shane had dreams of letting all the kids come over and pick pumpkins. We went in the backyard and admired the pumpkins almost every day. Then, after a couple of weeks in Missouri, the unthinkable happened. We returned and found bugs had infested the pumpkins. With great sadness in our hearts, Shane had to take out the pumpkins. This is our first time to talk about this publicly. I hope you get lots of good candy today. The people on the news suggested last night that you could give out pencils or stickers to children. Do they hate kids? What is happening to the world? Luckily tommorow we get to begin decorating for Christmas, grin!!

No, they hate their viewers. Ever seen what happens to the houses of the people who give out pencils and stickers?

Sorry about the pumpkins. That's really sad! How cool that you have a garden! Okay, I need you to motivate me to clean my house...I've thought about rereading Sink Reflections, but I don't feel like it!
