Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! It must be Halloween time! We got a few large pumpkins this year. It seemed like our options in the patch were huge or small. I'm sure you know which way the kids went. Unfortunately my theory of you have to carry it yourself isn't working out for me now that they are so big. They can carry a lot now.

Here are some suggestions to help you find the right pumpkin.

Sit on it and see if it'll hold your weight.

If it's too heavy get a friend to help you carry it.

Debate over which one is the best one.

Then, once you've selected the best of the best for yourself you show it to your mom.

This weekend was the Halloween Costume Parade. It's so awesome. The people around here put some serious work into the costumes and props.

Pirate Family, Arrg.

Little Max and a wild thing.

Guess who they're supposed to be?

Simon and Dan missed out on the parade because Simon had a Tae Kwon Do award ceremony to attend. Which means I missed out on the cool ceremony where the masters and instructors do cool things like cinder block breaking, wall climbing flips, and kicking an apple off a sword blind folded! Can't be two places at once though and Hannah really wanted to shake her granny fanny in the parade.

I told Hannah to be careful what grandma she was imitating :) She looks great. You are so creative!
