Halloween is one of my "must celebrate" holidays.  I love it so much for all the kid-at-heart fun.  If nothing else, I at least have to carve a pumpkin, so I have been bugging Mr. Fantastic for weeks about getting our pumpkins.  Yesterday, he finally gave in during a break in playing the new Rock Band 3 that came out yesterday.  We drove about 13 minutes to a little church that sells the pumpkins for charity.  I searched the aisles of pumpkins, but I just didn't see one.  Mr. F was being impatient...he doesn't quite understand my excitement about pumpkins!  He asked what about this one, what about that one?  They had big ones, little ones, skinny ones, fat ones.... and then I spotted one.  I exclaimed there it is!  That is the one....only to find that it had no stem and it was not ok with me.  I searched back over them again walking from side to side, and scanning each one.  Then I saw one that I had somehow missed - the perfect pumpkin for me!  It is fat and lop-sided, and perfect!  I love it.  After a little nagging and sadness on my part, I finally convinced him to get into the spirit and pick one out for himself.  Meanwhile, I was on the hunt for one for puppy.  They had black pumpkins and green pumpkins; warty pumpkins and squashy ones too.  He found one....a small one.  I found a greenish black one and we called it a day.  We brought our little pumpkin family hoe and they are sitting on the front porch waiting to be carved on Saturday!  I can't wait.  Here are some pictures
seriously taking pictures of this?

I love Halloween!

I just want a little one

Do I have to get one for real?

Our friend came to witness the shenanigans and laughed the whole time
