[#] [1]
happy halloween! we picked pumpkins on sauvie island on a bright, blustery autumn day (bring your freddy's reusable bag: they make -great- pumpkin totes), but we had a hard time fitting in the carving so we just did little ones:



then we set them all outside in a big happy family and held our breath, waiting to see how long they would last before someone in the neighborhood would smash them:



toby & gregory got into the holiday spirit, too! toby wanted a cape so he could fly, and gregory wanted fangs:



my default costume is mad scientist, but i think it suits me. that night we had kristen & todd over to watch "from beyond." we seemed to have more trick or treaters than we did last year, judging by the rate of candy consumption (we had a huge bowl of candy and used up every single piece of it). the costumes this year were better than they were last year, when boys would come to the door with hockey masks over their faces and no other sign of a costume. sven says we see more neighbors on halloween than we do at any other time of the year.



so i was thrilled & relieved that this year, the trick-or-treaters left the pumpkins alone! i didn't at all expect someone to come along during sven's birthday party the next night and smash them, but that's what they did:



so i had to do emergency pumpkin cleanup while sven showed videos to the partygoers. fortunately, there was cake afterwards. by request, this is a cake from saint cupcake, but i used that 62 logo on everything this year, including cards, presents, crepes, puff pasty and apple slices! (thanks to little miss gocco & shu-ju's incredible edible ink!)


Comments:
Smashed pumpkins! That would make me want to consider booby trapping them next year. Poo, perhaps? Of course then you'd have to smell it and clean it up if they smashed them on your yard.

Well, they were cute until they were murdered.
