Catching Up On The Holidays

Halloween came and went without much fanfare this year. I detest Halloween, so that was fine with me. The one fun thing that Becca and I did do was carve pumpkins.

We also bought special pumpkin-carving tool kits, consisting of bendy knives, hole pokers and little plastic spoons ergonomically designed to scoop out pumpkin guts. After gutting the pumpkins, roasting the seeds (yummy!) and carving away, this is what we had:

It was perfect, and it reminded me of one of the myriad reasons that I am the luckiest guy in the world. Here is just a glimpse:

Kyle made the bacon-wrapped turkey for his pre-Thanksgiving feast, and I agree that it is amazing!

Wishing you and Becca a happy Christmas!
