Skull Boy and the Spooky Cat

While this post is supposed to be about pumpkin carving...there will be very few pumpkin carving pictures.

Turns out Maddox likes the idea of carving pumpkins more than the reality. Actually, I think he just prefers playing with his friends. And as we sat down in the driveway to carve pumpkins, a few of the neighbor kids came running over wanting to help.

Maddox completed just a few scoops before jumping up to run around and play.

So we were really lucky to have the neighbor kids around...free labor!

Sara and Ross worked the hardest...
