The Cutting

The Coring

The Planning

The Agony

The Carving

And Carving

And Carving

And Waiting



The results are spectacular

Notice our theme?

Finally Halloween arrives

And there is some excitement

Once Emerson is dressed for the occasion, he's ready to go!

Chris and I took him around the block

Kim and Michelle stayed behind to distribute candy

It was a little scary the first time around

Maybe a lot scary

But there was candy!


Of course, fall is a great time to play in the yard

There's raking to be done

And rocks to be sorted

It's an important job


Thanksgiving means Aunt Marie visits

Between the birthday and Christmas, it means some new clothes

(Thanks, Aunt Sarah!)

And Christmas Pictures!
