Saturday morning I carved our pumpkin. I wanted to do a dachshund face, but after consulting the picture that I had, I decided it was too hard. I went with this instead:
It's a cat (with green eyes). I got this pumpkin carving kit several years ago (when Reid and I were still dating) and I hadn't used it. It was actually really easy and the little tools it came with worked super well. I plan on using it again next year!
Funny story about carving the pumpkin. I was bringing the pumpkin inside from our front stoop and of course I grabbed it by the stump. As I was carrying it through the living room, the stump broke off and the pumpkin crashed to the floor. Uncas in the other room asked if I was ok. I said that I was carrying the pumpkin by the handle and it broke off. He replied "It's NOT a handle!!!"

While I was excited to pass out candy to the trick or treaters, someone else in our family, doesn't really care for Halloween. I think Sammy was super confused to why the doorbell kept ringing. He would bark and bark, and sometimes run to our side door. Poor dog - it was a long night for him.

We had a lot less trick or treaters than last year. In a way, because of Sammy, it was a good thing. I don't know if the cold weather was keeping people away or the flu. We ended up with lots of candy leftover :-(
The rest of the weekend was fairly low key. Uncas finished up a little project in the bathroom (molding on the ceiling) and I did some studying. Sunday we had Josh over to watch the Vikings/Packers game. (Go Vikings!)
This weekend marked my 22 week. I am sure some people could care less about these weekly belly photos, but too bad. These are for my mom :-)
A quick story about that shirt - I have a couple of shirts that my mom bought for me back in August. At the time they were very big, but I knew that they would come in handy one day. On Saturday I saw this one in my closet and that - wow - that is going to be too big. And then I tried it on. Yeah - I guess it's not really that big anymore, because it seems to fit just fine . . .
