Can't Wait for Halloween...


So last Friday night Mike and I were supposed to go out on a date...I was so excited and felt like it was much needed! But...due to schedules and things we had to post pone...which totally made sense...but I was incredibly bummed! Before I knew it Mike was off at the store and back in a jiffy in his lap...a 16 lb pumpkin! Seriously...do you get any cooler than that? I don't think so...the rest of the evening was spent as a family cleaning...carving and lighting the pumpkin...Brody was so excited! We even cooked the seeds (thank you Richard)! This was all a first for our family...we had a blast...he even took me out on a date the next morning (thank you Mom and Dad for watching the kids)...what did I do to deserve this? Love you Mike!

Overcome with elation!!!

I drew the face...Mike carved...and Brody dropped (literally) the candle in the bottom! He also washed his hands a lot...every time they became slimy from the pumpkin's innards...he sure didn't like that feeling!


We were trying to make scary faces...Jocelyn's face looks scared...or bewildered.

And at the end of the night...the pumpkin was named Brody...by Brody...Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween to the Kemps! I have always loved carving pumpkins, but it is more fun with the whole family (all participating). Unfortunately, Ben is not as enthused as myself. Anyway, I love the pictures of your kids!

That looks like fun! Our family needs to do that. I love that Brody named the pumpkin after himself too. I'm jealous of your date! I wish we had grandparents around to watch Jayden. We've got to shell out the big bucks if we want some time alone together!

Was that contact lens or red eye, 'cause Mike's face looked the scariest. Happy Halloween!!!

How fun! I havent carved a pumpkin in forever, but cooking seeds is something my family did every year!

That looks like fun! We're supposed to be carving our pumpkins (we got two, one for each kid) next week and I can't wait! We just got to watch a video of us carving the pumpkin last year and it was so fun to watch Ryan's excitement! I love having these memories to look back on! Happy Halloween!
