Jack o’lanterns

Yesterday we brought out our knives and creativity to make this year’s jack o’lanterns. The cast of characters from left to right below are: Triangle Man, Mummy, Pumpkin Eater and Owl.

Ready for their close-ups:

Pumpkin Eater by Mary…

Owl by Sophia…

Mummy by Mary (on behalf of Sebastian who opted out of carving a pumpkin this year)…

And last, but not least, Triangle Man by Mike…

Happy Halloween everyone!  Be safe and don’t eat too much candy.  :)

Last Bits of Color

While taking the dog for a walk and raking leaves on Saturday, Sophia collected a variety of maple leaves to create an artistic display.  After the leaves were all lined up on a birch log, I quickly took photos before the wind blew them away.  We were both pleased with how the photos turned out and decided to submit one to Capture Minnesota.   Our image was selected as Photo of the Day on October 25.  Perhaps Sophia and I should team up more often.🙂
