Halloween....way too late.

Happy Halloween! I know I'm really late, but I just thought I'd share a few pictures from Kelly and my fun Halloween. I didn't have a chance to post earlier because it was the end of the trimester and winding up a class and final grades and all that stuff keeps a teacher busy. And exhausted. Today was the last day and the grades are in and students, if you're failing it's your own fault because you probably didn't bother to take the final. Looking forward to going through it all again with you starting Monday. And you wore me out. I went to bed at 9:30 last night! Anyway, for all you non-students (I don't think I have any student followers anyway) I'll show you how cute Dani and Kelly Pirates are and how talented at pumpkin carving I was last month. Then we can start the real holidays that actually mean something tomorrow.

The blank canvas. ...and Libby.

Somehow Libby thought she was helping.

The finished product! It's a Jolly Roger and I didn't even use a pattern! Just thought I'd brag a little.

I put this one on here too because it shows the swords better. You have to admit I'm awesome.

Kelly and I entered it in the Primary Trunk-or-Treat pumpkin carving contest and as you can see, we won the most Aaar-tistic. Woohoo!
Since Kel and I are Sunbeam teachers, we ran the ring toss at the Trunk-or-Treat for all the cute little primary kids. Of course we had to wear costumes! Since we are lazy and cheap, and I had to make them, we went for the old Dani and Kelly standby...pirates!

I think the Ahern pirates are the best I've ever seen. Your Jolly Roger jack-o-lantern was very 'Aarhg'tis and deserved its award.

I'm glad you posted your Halloween photos even though it is Thanksgiving. Better late than never. I'm also happy you survived another trimester and finals. Best wishes with the next one.

We'll look forward to your Thanksgiving post before you come home for Christmas!

Love, Mom
