Aunt Jean and James carving up the pumpkin. I got the job of 'gutting', since I'm primarily the eater of the seeds.
James chose our beloved home state as his design this year. He drew it free hand, which impressed me a great deal. I can't draw it on a flat piece of paper, let alone on a bumpy, round pumpkin.
Pearl, the zombie in PJs. Not so unlike how my kids behave when they've been to a sleepover---zombies all the next day.
James, the 6-armed man. No makeup, no crazy hair, no hat. Just "a guy with six arms, mom."
Tom, as Woody from Toy Story. His girlfriend, Kay, went as Bo Peep. There's a picture of the two of them somewhere (I've seen it on Facebook!), but it's not in our computer.
This is Tom's favorite look these days when having his picture taken--silly. He seems to be so happy these days. He's especially happy in this picture, because he's been fighting a college application deadline. He finally finished on Saturday. Just in the nick of time. It was those darn essays that were holding him up. Now we wait.
