Some things are just funny - like my tall-for-his-age boy furiously riding a tricycle around the front yard with his knees slamming into the handlebars with every push of the pedals.

And then there are things that are just plain cool - like this wicked pumpkin Braeden picked out at the pumpkin patch. Seriously, could he have picked a cooler pumpkin? It's all warty and lumpy, and has so much character.

Here he is, proudly holding the aforementioned pumpkin.

Speaking of pumpkins, check out this bad boy - I said I was going to do a Transformers pumpkin, and while I need to refine my technique a bit, I still think I carved out a way cool Autobot-o-lantern. I should win an award for Cool Mommy or something.

Another shot of my Halloween masterpiece.

And totally unrelated, here is one of the best pictures I've ever gotten of my sweet dog - we've only had him for ten years!!!

Pumpkin Patch

Yes, folks, I have finally taken some pictures! Unfortunately, I have a bad sensor in my camera, so anything take in low light will have this icky red laser line right down the center of the photo. Totally too expensive to fix. Totally unfair.

Anyway, here are pictures from our Pumpkin Patch trip this afternoon. I didn't take as many, since there were hundred of kindergarteners running around, but I did get two that I especially liked. Enjoy!

Halloween, 1980

Nope, I didn't take it. But I needed to post something, and this seemed rather amusing and appropriate for the season. It's me and my cousin Shawn. I'm the one in the Bugs Bunny outfit. Remember those gosh-awful plastic costumes from the 80s? They didn't even look like a costume - just a plastic suit with a logo and cheap plastic mask with elastic bands that hurt like heck when someone snapped them against your cheek.

Ah, yes. Those were the days!
