Jackolantern Fest 07

Well Matt called me on my way out of work and I met him at our house. We took out some frozen pie crust and then went downstairs to shoot some pool.

We played one game (poorly) and Heath and Peanut showed up mid game. We nearly finished the game before Peanut pulled up a stool and took over the table.

Then we went outside for a bit and just screwed around until Matt left for his brothers house. Then I got some potatoes, onions, green pepper, carrots and celery ready. We decided to take a small quick run and loaded Peanut in the stroller then nearly sprinted down to 99th and back.

When we got back home we got the pumpkins ready.

I got the knife and Peanut got the spoon and we went to work on the pumpkins.

Heath mixed all the veggies together with some cream of mushroom and cream of celery soup then put in all last nights rotisserie chicken leftovers. Then dumped them on a pie crust and put the other crust on top and tossed it in the oven.

Then she joined us to work on the pumpkins.

Peanut wanted a happy pumpkin, a scary pumpkin and a goofy pumpkin so that is what we tried to do.

Mine was scary, his was goofy and Heath’s was happy.

We put them outside on the hay bale with Sticks the scarecrow.

Then we came in to eat chicken pot pie. It was golden brown and steaming.

We all were hungry from the jackolantering and tore it up w/ some cottage cheese and apple sauce. Then we had homemade cookies from yesterday w/ some chocolate ice cream and Peanut got ready for bed. I read a book about counting bugs and H read one about some girl who lived with wild horses. Then we went downstairs for an hour of work on the laundry room.

Last night we began to stain the wood on the trim, and wood panel wall. We decided the blue/gray trim and closet dried well and so all that is left is possibly another coat of stain and then to stain the desk the same color and put the room back together.

After staining we eagerly watched the final episode of Damages…

…and enjoyed it.

Speaking of Halloween, whats going on? Saturday night any Halloween fun planned anywhere? Heath and I will have folks over if nothing else is going on, Possibly a pirate themed party?

    when a guy my dad works with was little, his family used to take road trips and they would cook hotdogs on the engine rather than stop at restaurants . . . pretty funny stuff.

    I’m just going to assume everyone already knew everything there is to know about cooking on motors. ( I think a baked potato would be one of the best items) and everyone is going to some private party for halloween and does not want me to find out and everyone thinks our laundry room is terrible.

    I’m not doing anything this weekend.  Ashley is having her sister’s bachelorette party on Saturday and apparently all the drunk women are staying at my house and I have been asked to not stay there.  Maybe some hot lez action is planned.   Anyways, I’m up for something.  I have no costume at this point though…. 🙁

    Also, I like the laundry room.  It looks like a lot of fun to do some laundry in there. 


    ouch.  haven’t any of those girls ever heard of hotels? 

    i think a group of people will be going out on saturday in their costumes . . . not sure where though.  unfortunately, i don’t have a costume yet and i’m not sure what i’m going to be . . . possibly dead chris benoit . . . i will not be smothering any family members though.

    Well, i was planning on being in Chicago, but I’ve had a change of plans so I’m going to be home this weekend.  She has already given my spot in the bed to someone or I would stay there.  So I guess I’m also going to need to stay at someone’s house that night too.  Damn.

    I like the Benoit idea.  Will you be shirtless?  Better not skip the gym this week…….

    Boy that was delicious!  Peanut even ate it up…which proves Stooks wrong that he wouldn’t like it.
