I hope you Halloween Day is going well so far. It's be a bit rough around here. Josh is sick with some cold bug and has been mopeing around the house. Other than that, Elijah is SUPER excited that it is Halloween.... FINALLY. Our ward is doing a trunk-or-treat tonight (where everyone meets at the church parking lot and gives candy out from their car while the kids do the rounds). I've got my chocolate stocked up and I'm crossing my fingers that there will be leftovers.

Last night we finally got the chance to carve our pumpkins. We got one of those silly books at Walmart and Elijah picked out the "Pirate" one with the skull and cross bones. Josh did an amazing job carving it out and Elijah even pitched in cutting out a few pieces, which he was excited about. I did a silly face pumpkin for Sam. He's super proud of it and keeps making sure that everyone knows that it is "mine?". I ventured out and made my own copy of an owl. It turned out better than I hoped.

After we were done we had to light them and see what they looked like. I was really impressed with our handy work. The boys were in awe. The cool thing was that with all the lights off you could see the silouette on our vaulted ceiling. We ended up lighting each pumpkin individually to check out the full effect of each pumpkin.
Very COOL!

I also got to test out the "candlelight" mode on my camera and I'm excited that the pictures worked.

Have a safe and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
