Halloween Prep

We are all ready for Halloween tomorrow!  The boys even did a practice trick or treating round when they were visiting with their grandparents.

Yesterday we carved pumpkins and did a little bit of decorating.  Poor Cavan fell off the table in the middle of our carving fun and really hurt his arm.  He screamed for a while, refused to let us touch it, and then fell asleep for 12 hours!  Today he is using it and there is only a small bit of bruising, so we think he is okay.

They are mighty excited to head out around the town tomorrow collecting loot.  Both boys will be dressed as pirates.  We have a children's book about a little mouse who falls asleep beside an old metal kettle and he dreams that he becomes a pirate.  The book is called, "Kettleship Pirates" and the little mouse at one points says, "Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of milk!"  Now whenever we ask the boys what a pirate says they respond with that.  It is adorable!

Hunter was brave enough this year to help with scooping the guts!

The puking pumpkins at our entrance way.

A rather menacing looking pirate!
