|This evening, the girls were ready early for trick-or-treating.|
To start, a couple of weeks ago, our local farm had its annual pumpkin patch sale. As has been the case in the past few years, it was a cold, wet, muddy event. We quickly dashed in, grabbed our pumpkin and got out.
|Our furry little creature seems to enjoy sharing the ride with a large vegetable.|
|We braved the drizzle long enough to have a little fun along the way.|
|Pugsley power. How does Big Fat Dummy Daddy sound?|
|Aww, how cute.|
|Scout has been with us for 11 months now, and is a changed, confident dog. |
Though, we haven't mastered 'sit' or many other non-bike related commands quite yet.
In any case, I'll have to say that the results of our pumpkin project turned out quite good. As is the case with most farm-raised pumpkins, the seeds were perfect for roasting.
|This is what happens to eyes when a flash illuminates an otherwise completely darkened room.|
|The girls' eyes aren't so bugged out in a room with the lights on.|
The costumes turned out pretty good this year. Julie sourced the pumpkin costume and parts of the Word Girl costume. As the seamstress of the family, I sewed the satiny cape and constructed the Word Girl emblem on the red shirt. Her venerable red rain boots filled the role as superhero boots. For those who aren't parents or at least viewers of afternoon PBS programs, Word Girl is actually a quite entertaining and intelligently written show that is a gem among programs aimed at children. It's well worth checking out, especially for the quirky villains.
|All dressed up and ready to go.|
|Our little pumpkin.|
|Word Girl is ready to fly.|
