Happy Halloween...

Trick or Treat! 

Tonight I met Buzz Light year, Woody, a Ballerina, an awesome Giraffe, and many other characters. 

Our Halloween officially began after our stake conference today with the following events...

Mike didn't want me to see what he was going to carve so I wasn't allowed to look until he was fully finished... It was easy not to look since I was fully enthralled in the design of my own pumpkin.





The beginning of stages of my pumpkin... Can you guess what I ended up carving?
 Mike diligently working on his pumpkin...



Can you see my design yet??


I ended up carving... SPARKY the ASU Sun Devil Mascot...

 I spent way too much time carving this thing... It took me two hours I literally did it all by hand and realized that we need to invest in a dremel...
 After carving pumpkins we decided to BBQ... well, Mike started grilling while I was finishing up my pumpkin... But I did manage to clean and set the table before dinner was done... so I did help him out.
 I love my husband... he is the best... I am so blessed to have him in my life.
 Kabobs and asparagus... DELICIOUS... I officially married a man that can grill just as good as my Dad... and that's a big deal because that was a requirement for us to get married.. ;)
 Mike decided to carve two pitch forks into his pumpkin... can you tell we are originally from Arizona and both attended ASU? :)
 See if I had a Dremel then you would be able to see sparky's teeth better... maybe I'll ask for one for Christmas... :)
Here is our house... does it look spooky? We enjoyed talking with one another in our front yard next to our fire pit while passing out candy to the little kids... we had so much fun and enjoyed some SMORES... another investment is to purchase "fire less logs" ... I mean "smoke less logs" Mike will never let me go for calling them fire less logs... :)
 Playing with my flash for my camera... (And, no the red mark on my neck is NOT a hicky... It is actually a terrible burn from my straightener this morning it is so bad the skin is peeling off my neck.)
 Calling family to say hi after our Halloween fun...
Happy Halloween everyone... hope your day was wonderful...

I LOVE the pumpkins! Good job making it through your first big holiday away from home--we missed you for sure. Hope you know we love you. Glad your house was all spooky! Spider webs are the best, now that Halloween is over, go out & buy a big ugly spider on sale for next year!
