The illumination!!!!!



So this is part of our annual Halloween tradition. Carve jack-o-lanterns on the Monday night before Halloween and then take them out on the porch to show them off. These are all pumpkins from my garden this year! I am proud of myself. Next year I'm going to work on giant pumpkins--Daysa tells me I'm a geek but wait until she sees the size of pumpkins I'm going to grow.

We love Halloween! And we really get into it. Sunday I did the Sunday before Halloween dinner--stew in a pumpkin and everything else Halloween and Harvest related. I really outdid myself this year. I tried a new stew recipe and Phil says it was the best ever "BY A LONG WAYS!"Just what exactly does that mean? I'll post the recipe later but it was stew cooked in apple cider.

The rest of the menu included orange colored lemonade, eyeballs, chunks of giant's earwax, cornbread baked with baby toes, and curdled apple pudding cake--yum yum. Laney, Taylor, Ashley Christly, and Hailey Oswald all joined us.

gotta go answer the door--TRICK OR TREATERS ARE HERE
