That is totally cool, having an older brother willing to give up MNF and go trick-or-treating with his younger brother. Growing up, I likely would've been told "tough shit", or made to pay dearly later.

I tried last week to convince my youngest to go as an Angry Bird. No go. Last night... "mom mom mom, where is my angry bird costume?" Instead he was frick'n hilarious as a Slytherin student. I need your boys to take my boys trick or treating. Now that would be funny. I could barely keep up they ran so fast.

The first time I ever saw a pic of a pumpkin vomiting in a toilet, I was disgusted (and a bit gaggy!). But now I've grown to appreciate the art in setting the scene. Cute work from your artists. And Mr. T??? What a gem!! In a good way! Every kid should have a big brother like that.

I love the pumpkins. Beats the heck out of old-school versions. And I agree with PeggyK that Bones is lucky to have such a cool big brother.

Spend that much money on pumkins?


Pumpkins are that expensive in Florida?

They are practically free here in the Great White North, grown everywhere, sold on the roadside in small stands.


And they last forever because of the cold. People put pumpkins out at least 2 weeks before Halloween and they last beyond.

Haha My family totally digressed this year. My son handed out candy for the first time while his sister studied for 2 exams. She bought the pumpkin (from the same church) on the way home from school in the pouring rain, carved it, and roasted the seeds. Husband watched football. I finally got to relax! Love your boys but they missed my house!!

You have great kids.

Love the pumpkins... I went all Halloween Scrooge and didn't decorate or hand out candy for the first time in thirty years. However, I couldn't break with the tradition of carving a pumpkin. Most years I do anywhere from 3 to 7, but this year, just one.

It was my first at home experience and it was a hoot. I had 3 oompa loompa girls show up, all dressed alike in home made costumes faithful to the movie and with the hair coloring. Amazing.
What a great night.

An idea for next year's pumpkin:

Go with the evil one again, then find a severed leg style decoration (dressed in jeans w/ sock and old shoe), place in the pumpkin's mouth, and coat liberally with fake blood.

Are there really people in this country who need the word "Mustard" in order to be able to correctly identify the costume?
