We usually carve pumpkins a night or two before Halloween, but we had a really busy week, so we weren't able to carve our pumpkins until Friday night. We like to use patterns to carve all different things. This year Andy carved a witch, Amanda a skull and crossbones, Sam a spider and web and I carved a cat and moon. After our pumpkin carving, the girls and I went to the church for trunk or treating. (Andy had to stay home to get the jeep ready to go 4x4'ing the next day.) Amanda helped a single mother with 2 year old twin boys go around to the cars, while Sam and I handed out candy from the car. After that we dropped Sam off at her friends house for a party. It was a sleep over, but she couldn't stay overnight because we were leaving early Saturday morning. She was bummed to have to leave Friday night, but it was worth it to be able to go out in the jeep.
