Saturday was a lazy stay-at-home day. We finally sat down to choose pictures for our wedding album. Narrowing down 600 pictures to 140 is quite difficult...it took hours. Now I can't wait to get the album. Since we were on a roll with the pictures we decided to order our christmas cards now and get that done. Get excited...the Keenan Family's very first Christmas card will be hitting your mailboxes in early December! That night we made pizzas together...a great friend gave me this phenominal recipe for a chicken, mushroom, lemon artichoke pesto pizza! (love and miss ya Ali)! I was trying to get into the Halloween spirit and wanted to watch a scary movie. This took some convincing 'cause Conor hates horror films. We finally decided to watch Paranormal Activity, so we'd know what everyone is talking about...it was horrible! The biggest waste of my time and not scary. I only jumped a tad at the very end. I've had scarier nightmares!
Finally, Halloween was here. To me, Halloween kicks off the holiday season. This is the first year I've been able to carve pumpkins outside in 85 degree weather while wearing shorts. Kinda different. Any of you who have carved pumpkins with me before will know that I am horrible at it. I've practically been carving the same thing since I was ten. It's embarassing. So this year I was determined to step up my game! I found a pumpkin pattern that I liked online and used that. About an hour and half later, I had a pretty sweet ghost! So proud of it. Conor carved a spider which proved to be a little more difficut and he had a few issues...but nothing that some toothpicks couldn't fix.
