Halloween Hits Home

Halloween isn't my favorite holiday.  I actually kind of hate it. Masks, eek! Grandma's cookies are the only good thing about it. 
This year my mom found a "haunted" tour of SLC.  Those of you who know me know I'm big into haunted stuff. Weird since I don't like halloween. So we went, and this time we actually went on the right day!!! Jess came with us too. 

So we basically got on a "LE BUS" and drove around listening to stories about the "haunted" places around SLC.  It was pretty cool and I enjoyed it.  

By the time Jess and I got home it was pretty late and Jess needed to finish scraping part of her pumpkin for work.  Well what else are best friends for? We got out some metal measuring spoons and away we went. Only true friends will stay up late with you and help you scrape a freaken pumpkin. 

This was the finished product.  It looks way good if you ask me.  She ended up winning 2nd place too! Jess has mad carving skills!

Well yesterday was basically, well perfect.  It was a lot of fun.  We went grocery shopping and on our way home I got my first 7-11 hot chocolate of the season. Pumpkin spice, it was SO good!

We decided to make little halloween gifts for our 2 roommates but then decided why not do some for the boys next door too and while we're at it our RA. So away we went... 

 They just had candy in each jack-o-lantern cup plus a super cute tag made by yours truly. 
We put the left over candy in an orange mixing bowl and left it out.  I figure if it's out for everybody I'll eat less, right? At least that's how it should work in theory. 

Then that night Jess, Leina, and I carved pumpkins! 
It was probably the first time I'd carved a pumpkin since I was like 8. 

Leina and Me. She's from Korea. 

Gutting the pumpkins

It was a lot of fun.  Here's our finished products. . .  

Leina's pumpkin


Mine wasn't quite done yet but we had to take a break and take Mary to the store to get some medicine. Leina came with us and I'm pretty sure she is convinced we are crazy.  Mary full on convinced her that "car dancing" is a huge past time in America haha.  Poor Leina. She totally bought it. While we were rocking out, of course I had to put on my latest jam "Moves Like Jagger." The second it came on Leina goes, "wait, wait, who is this... uhh... Jagger?" haha it was so great! 

Me and Frankenfurt. My new BF. 

Isn't he so cute!?!?! 

Jess being.... well, Jess 

Me and Jess 

This is all of our pumpkins lit up.  They turned out so cute! 

We stashed them under our window to spice up our humble abode. 

Now our house has been taken over by fruit flies.  We're not sure where they came from though. Hmm.

 All in all it's been a successful Halloween season around here.

  1. I'll take a stab at where the flies came from!! But I'm not going to say it here. Too public! Love your pumpkin too.
