Pumpkin Pride

It was my job to post the pumpkins and I didn't get around to it until now. Sorry it is late.

Emily's, Lila's, Johnny's

Lila actually got to help this year, and she didn't even try to eat the pumpkins as she has in the past.

If some are are wondering where I have taken my inspiration for my amazing jack-0-lantern, I typically use a pumpkin stencil from This year I used the Strong Mad stencil. Previously I used the Trogdor stencil which turned out very nicely.

If you enjoyed the Trogdor cartoon you may enjoy some of their Halloween toons (Homestarlaween Party, A Pumpkin Carve-nival, A Boogidy Boogidy). You gotta love those costumes. If you didn't think Trogdor was funny (Emily sure doesn't) then I wouldn't bother watching these.

just for the record I think that Homestar & gang are funny some of the time, I just don't want to have to watch it to find out if I think it's funny or not. Also... I love that picture of Lila looking at the pumpkin. Is it bad to say that on my own blog? (Johnny took the picture!)

These are so cute. That pic of Lila IS darling, and that pumpking is pretty amazing. You guys just outdue yourselves. You make the rest of us (without twins) look pretty pathetic. I should have posted some pics of our pumpkins rotting on our front porch.. I finally threw them out and they were awfully beautiful!

Great job on the carving...These look really cool! And I also love Homestar Runner...I haven't thought about that cartoon in a while, but I'm cracking up just thinking about it.

I loved seeing Lila past and present on this entry. I almost didn't recognize her licking the pumpkin. Great job on your pumpkins. I really liked Emily's the best, the witch was awesome.

I love that picture of Lila looking at the pumpkin too. Seriously guys. Some of your pictures look straight out of a magazine.

(and how cool is Monica's profile picture? It makes mine look so dorky and uncool.)

Emily and you were acting like I carved great pumpkins and look at yours. You are seriously retarded. so, what's with the naked pumpkin carving anyway, Lila? And Johnny, I forgot about So Carson and Haley were with me looking at the blog and they both were LOL with me while we watched Trogdor. So, so funny. As a matter of fact, I think I am going to watch it again right now.

for the record (again) she isn't naked. She's sporting her regular outfit (her undies... and only her undies.) It's her favorite thing to wear, even now that it is cold outside. Go figure!

So I was reading Katieo's comment and she mentioned that Monica's profile picture was cool and since my baby is asleep, I have some spare time and I decided to check out Monica's profile picture and I saw a picture of Melanie Merrill (Monica's sister). The strange thing is that Melanie Merrill lived in the same building as me at Utah State. Just thought it was weird that your sister was building mates with your old roommate's sister... Ok, so I'm lacking adult interaction and the littlest things entertain me now.
