Did A Little Carvin' And We're Off...

As I've mentioned before one of my very favorite traditions is pumpkin carving with my niece and nephew. This year my nephew brought a couple of his best buddies along and everyone pitched in an helped clean (eeewww!) and carve.

Of course I was in my glory just hanging with them - man they make me laugh.

And laughter people, is the very best medicine!

Here's a shot of the four of them (Taylor, Alec, McKae and Clark) with the final product. This picture doesn't do the pumpkins justice - and as for the kids, well anyone can see that they are all fabulously cute!






You might wonder why we are carving so early this year. Well, the Senor and I are heading out on another adventure. While away we plan to relish Little Italy and the Fisherman's Wharf, gaze upon the Golden Gate bridge, marvel at the splendor of Muir Woods, drink our way through the wine country and challenge "Lady Luck".

Yes, I should have all kind of tales to share upon my return.

Until then...Adios...Auf Wiedersehen...
au revoir ...αντίο...
arrivederci...adeus...
vaarwel...
bye-bye!

I found your blog through SITS. The very first thing that I have to say is that as soon as I saw the name I started to laugh!! I am a no shoe kind of girl (and when shoes are necessary I wear flip flops!) my mom is too, and she and I have this private joke where we look at each other and say "my toes can't breath! help, they are claustrophobic!"

Now, enough about me! :) Your pumpkins are amazing!! Have a great time on your trip!
