Last weekend, the hubbers and I went out to Fall City Farms to pick out some punkins.

Scary scarecrows...




The hubbers inspecting the merchandise.

Ha ha - I caught you sneaky photog!

A trip to the punkin patch is never complete without cider and donuts. 
(I miss this so much from my hometown in Michigan -- I lived a few miles from 4 different cider mills.  Yeah, we like our apples.)

Yesterday we decided it was time to carve up these bad boys.  The hubbers drew that beautiful tree himself! 
No stencils here, folks.

My punkin is dark green, with lots of scars and marks, so really there was only one thing it could be:
( ps - i updated mine late yesterday. he now has punkin guts dangling from his mouth. will photo soon.) 

We got so excited we had to preview what our punkins would look like lit up. 
We took them to the hall bath for this photo.  : P

{ what will your punkins look like this year? }

    I was skeptical about the tree until I saw it lit up - looks great!! lol

    Thanks for your comment at my blog! Your dream is so sad, lol! It reminds me of those dreams I get sometimes where I go through the entire morning getting up and getting ready process, from using the bathroom to eating to leaving, and then I get up and realize I have to do all of that all over again! :(
