How was your Halloween? We don't trick or treat over here yet....combination of us not allowing Miss Buggernut to eat a lot and candy and because the Hubster had to work. But we still got into the spirit.

Exhibit A: Dorky, cheesy grin pictures in 100 degree heat at the pumpkin patch. Yes, you read that right. 100 degrees. We pretty much live in hell.

Exhibit B: Carving pumpkins with Daddy, while Mommy sat and knit a sock (instead of working on the mounting pile of Christmas knitting) and drank a glass of merlot. The 'Nut named her pumpkin, Cat. I'm not seeing the resemblance. Whatevs.

Exhibit C: Getting a super cute haircut. (More than one pic just for you Sarie!)

Exhibit D: Making vegan vanilla cupcakes with vegan chocolate "buttercream" frosting and topping them with non-vegan (ehem) sprinkles. Recipe is from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. These are the BEST cupcakes evah. Cupcake liners are from Martha Stewart at Michael's...they probably have some on clearance now that you can get for next year. I can't wait to see the Christmas ones!

And if I hadn't started decreasing the toe on my current sock (aka The Christmas Avoidance Project) too quickly, I would have some sock pics to show you. Does anyone have a favorite toe "recipe" that you want to share? Sometimes I do a regular know....knit to the last stitch, K2tog and then K1....followed by k1, ssk. Lately I've been doing the toe from the Charade sock's a bit different....but since I have to rip back on this sock, I'd like to try something different. Any suggestions?

Love your haircut and the bugs, both so cute. Love carving pumpkins with the kids, so much fun, just not the cleanup, they were stained orange until bathtime. Yeah, the boys only got one piece of candy each and they made it sound like we were the worth parents ever. Way too bad.

Gotta go get that cookbook.

Ok, your jack o'lantern has the same exact face as one of ours. We weren't even going to do them this year, but I printed out some halloween coloring sheets with kitties in jack o'lanterns on them and Kai was like, "WE FORGOT TO CARVE PUMPKINS!!!" So Adam saved the day and brought some home for us.

I heard a tip last year to use an ice cream scoop to get the seeds out and it worked a treat. Instead of taking 20 minutes to pull all the slime out, I had both of them scooped out and carved in under 10. Brilliant!

Syd's hair is totally cute! And your hair, too!

yay for haircuts!

so funny bc i was (as i was working on the charade toe on the super secret conjoined creations sock) going to email you and ask you what you thought of that toe and if you had a favorite. weird. i think i like the k2tog, k1 - k1, ssk toe better than the charade one...i didnt like how the decreases were sooooo spaced out in the beginning of the decrease.
