I didn’t get clear pictures of all the pumpkins but here are a few of the others.  Sorry if you don’t see yours here. It doesn’t mean I didn’t like it.

7th Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest

It’s that time again!  Get out your carving knives and start looking for the perfect stencil.  Due to the popularity of our annual contest, I am going to open the contest to anyone who wants to participate.  Here is how we are going to do it.  There will essentially be two contests.  The first contest will be the live contest at our house.  That will be Friday October 29th from 7-8pm (we’ll play games and hang out until 9pm).  If you read our blog and want to participate please RSVP by leaving a comment.  The second contest will essentially be online.  All pumpkins carved at the party will be posted online along with anyone who emails me a photo of their pumpkin.  We will then have an online poll posted October 30-31 and I will announce the Winner Halloween night at 9pm MST.

Halloween 2009

Halloween is a fun holiday. The kids always enjoy making a scarecrow for the front porch. Is it demented that the kids like to play with the plastic eyeballs from the decoration box?IMG_5039
Getting the decorations out.
Cutest cowgirl I have ever seen.
Jackson with his “biew biew”. There were a lot of monsters to get at the ward trunk or treat.

Gardening Fail!

We’re not quite prepared for a major disaster. Let’s just say if we had to grow our own food the upside would be that we would lose weight. We joined a pumpkin growing contest of a friend and things were going pretty good for a couple weeks then the heat came. Our poor pumpkin plants couldn’t take the 116 degree temperatures and this is what happened. I had such high hopes of growing a massive pumpkin. Maybe next year we’ll start earlier and get a shade or something.IMG_4794
At least we can grow cute kids. We just won’t be able to feed them.
