Carved Pumpkins

Halloween was a blast. We had such fun carving our pumpkins and I think you will all agree they look simple marvelous. The night turned out just beautifully weather-wise. It was nice and warm with just a few clouds scudding past the almost full moon. We spent some time sitting out on the front lawn just admiring all the decorations around the house.

I don't know how Hubby comes up with these ideas for his designs but he outdoes himself every year. The pressure is already on for next year.

The kids had fun getting their treat bags and their parents where in shock to see the Pumpkins. Living out in the country we really don't get many trick or treaters only five this year. It looked, for a while that we weren't going to get any at all but in the last 45 minutes before curfew two cars arrived and then the kids from down the road brought their friends over to see the carving.

We had a nice roast chicken dinner and a good bottle of wine while we were waiting for kiddies to show up. I made some Pumpkin Muffins with cream cheese icing for dessert. Quite a feast!

I also got very spoiled and received a very special Halloween gift. She is so cute.
I'm one very lucky girl and Hubby really lets me know it. I hope you all had as great a time as we did!

Your pumpkins are gorgeous! I was going to say they were absolutely smashing but of course, that might be taken the wrong way ...
