Pumpkin Carving



Gabe's obviously the more skilled carver. I carved the spider.


Last night, Gabe and I spent countless hours carving pumpkins, drinking hot tea, watching scary movies and It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, and eating lots of candy. This is exactly how I like to celebrate Halloween and it was the perfect evening. Instead of dressing up this year, I'm excited to be heading home to meet Sarah's new baby, Sophie and spend some time with my family. Have a great weekend, everyone! What are your Halloween plans?
