Christmas is supposed to smell like pine needles and snow. Halloween is supposed to smell like pumpkin guts. :) For this reason, we carved pumpkins even though with four little children, it was no small feat.

Of course, you can't tell from photos. Everyone looks whine-free, happily scooping out pumpkins they each picked out themselves. But trust me. There was a way-too-late dinner of mac-n-cheese followed by adults finishing the children's work all while being serenaded by a crying baby.

In the end, I was left carving out the designs they clumsily penned onto the pumpkins while they watched halloween cartoons. J rocked the baby. We all stayed up an hour past our bedtimes to light the pumpkins and watch them flicker in the dark.

Which made it all worth it. :)

Spookalicous and well worth the late dinner, crying baby and staying up past bed times. I love a glowing spooky pumpkin.

Awesome. Yeah, that sounds like our ghost activity: worth it in the end.

And don't you love it when baby provides background music, sort of tying the whole feel of everything together. :S On the other hand, there are few things that make a home feel happier than when everyone is happily going about their business (together or separately) and the baby is babbling sweetly in the background. I, how I love that.

My favorite is the smallest one. That is one very scary mouth.
