Halloween "pre-game"

T'was three nights before Halloween...LOL!

So, we finally carved our pumpkin! I've had it for a few days now. It's just been sitting in the kitchen floor, waiting for us to make it all halloween-y! Jackson has been telling it "bye bye pu'kin" the past few mornings. After supper last night we put down a drop cloth in the living room floor...yes, the living room floor...and got to work!
Jackson was right there, ready to help!


It was total monkey see, monkey do!
Kyle would scoop stuff out, then Jackson would reach in and scoop!
He kept stopping and checking it out!
While Kyle was putting the template on (just wait, you'll see why we used a template), Jackson and I "decorated" halloween cookies.
It was more about the cookie and less about the decorating!
(I love this picture!)
One final assistance before bath time. We did bath while Kyle actually carved the pumpkin.
And our finished product!! A Mickey Mouse-o-lantern!
We had so much fun! :)

Just call me Auntie

Although for 9 months now I've been saying "Aunt" and "going to be and Aunt" I can now officially say... I AM AN AUNT! :) Miss Savannah was born yesterday afternoon! My brand new niece and my sister are doing great!

I was communication central yesterday! LOL! I had my phone texting and Kyle's phone on the internet on facebook! So, I only have 1 picture...so far...to share.
It's actually off of my phone, so considering that, it's not too bad!!
