Halloween Hijinks

Hello, my pretties! *cackle*

[Cough, hack, snort] Sorry, out of practice. Welcome to Halloween Hijinks for 2008. Yes, I know I'm a year late with these photos. So sue me, I've been busy!

Come closer to me, darling blog readers! Oh, don't be afraid of these little claws of mine. I only use them to tickle!

Every year my Rare One and I carve two pumpkins. We put these fearsome jack-o-lanterns on our front step, accompanied by our two very realistic-looking rubber rats named Cardinal Ratzinger and Archbishop Fang. Here are the pumpkins which we carved last year:

Oho, scary stuff, I know! I carved Athena's owl silhouetted against the Crone's crescent moon:

And my Rare One carved the Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz. Her Royal Highness liked this pumpkin best. She's always secretly thought of herself as a lion, too.

On Halloween night, after handing out candy to many little trick-or-treaters, we took a wee ride around our neighbourhood to see the spooky decorations.

Even Her Royal Highness got into the spirit of Halloween and had a good time!

I love the nails except when I see real ones on real people and then I am totally grossed out.

Great pumpkins.

Oh my Gosh! The pumpkins!!! Did you laser cut them? Spectacular! I always do the little triangle eyes and ragged-teeth look. No wonder I've lost interest in carving pumpkins. If I could do that! NOw that's something. Awesome.

Love the JOLs. Great job on the carving.
Samhain Blessings to you!
