The Blacks hosted a wonderful pumpkin carving party again this year.
Two years ago when we carved our pumpkins at the Blacks Scott was Owen's age, Ryker was Scott's age and there were a whole lot less babies around.
Fast forward to this year and there were 4 toddlers and 3 babies and another on the way (not ours!)
And in the whole group only one girl: Crystal's niece Maya.
Football was on and Brian was EXCITED. Poor guy, he hasn't gotten to watch any sports lately, we don't miss having cable but he definitely misses sports.
Owen was taking an ergo nap so Brian was in charge of carving our 'patch'.
Scott and Ryker were interested for less than two minutes

Ryker, Scott and Sebastian played in the dirt while their parents carved their jack-o-lanterns
Adam helped Brian with a sip of his beer since Brian's hands were covered in pumpkin guts. Bromance.
Brian's female carving counterparts. Love these girls!!!
The book that had some pictures you could use to carve your pumpkin from was called "Pumpkin Masters". Trish commented that she would like to choose from the 'pumpkin beginners' book as the one she had chosen was proving to be more complicated than she hoped! HAHA! We went with the easiest one of the bunch I think! Oh and mommy also bought us a really really small pumpkin, sorry boys, I'll choose better next year.

Up from his nap, Owen was ready to get in on the fun!
I kept missing Scott's good smiles while holding the pumpkin...
Cheeseball fake smile...
Waiting for the gopher to stick his head up so they could chuck rocks at him. He never returned. Probably knew better.
Happy Halloween 2012 from the Campbells
