I hope I don't get a rock

Dear Internets,

I'm getting pretty excited about my Halloween movie night tomorrow. The decorations have been made or borrowed, the movies have been rented (where necessary), and the cupcakes will be finished tonight.

My decorations are fancy.

It's not just me and Audrey who are getting pumped; A is excited too. Even Bailey is getting into the Halloween spirit, which you can tell from this picture:

In person, he looked more sad than possessed. He wanted to help with the decorations, I think.

While I have been busy tackling the important tasks of taking funny pictures of the dog and making costumes for our wall art, A has been busy carving jack-o-lanterns. I'm probably biased, but I think he's pretty talented. Here's a tiny one he made me last year for Halloween:

I forgot to take a picture until the pumpkin was a little bit past it's prime, but it was pretty awesome. Also, romantic.

I'm not exactly a world-class pumpkin carver, so I decided to try a different approach. Unfortunately, my painted pumpkin ended up looking like a painted lady. Behold, Grizzelda:

Me, pretty much, if I'm out past midnight.

Tomorrow, I'll post pictures of the cupcakes, and more of A's pumpkins. (Hopefully, the talking cupcake will approve of my attempts at cupcake-decorating!)

Love always,
