Jack-O-Lantern Teamwork

We carved our jack-o-lantern the other day. In the past, Bret's done the design and all the work while the boys "help"...or throw pumpkin guts at one another.

This year was a little different. Don't worry - Bret was still in charge of the knife. :) But the boys did help with the design.Micah drew the eyes, Joey drew the eyebrows, and Conner drew the mouth.It wasn't until after the carving had begun that Conner realized that the top teeth were upside-down. But we decided it was okay...kind of cool even.

And Joey, fire-loving Joey, just had to sing "Happy Birthday" to the jack-o-lantern after we lit it's candle so that he could then blow the fire out. :)

And while we're on the topic of Halloween, we also made a gingerbread-type haunted house that turned out pretty cute.

Now we're just looking forward to costumes and candy!
