Happy Halloween!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I wish everyone could get the day off after Halloween so that they can stay out late and have fun.

It's great because everyone doesn't have to be so serious about Halloween. It's all fun and games...until someone gets killed like in them crime shows. So, have fun but be safe! I sound like a mom but you'll thank me!

Anyways, our family isn't big on decorating and stuff because my parents did not grow up with Halloween, so it's a strange holiday to them as um...chicken liver is to some of you. My first Halloween in America, our class took a field trip to the pumpkin patch and I remember it was uber fun. I also remember not knowing much about Halloween and just followed went with the flow. (The favorite sister just corrected me that it's "went with the flow" because I am a FOB and do not know any better)

So, yeah, that brings me to the present. I now have a job and life is so boring because I basically accomplished 90% of what I wanted to accomplished. What else is left to do but to start building my own holiday tradition and stuff? Halloween sounds like a good time to start.

Here's my latest victim! I mean...chosen pumpkin.

Scooped so hard, the spoon bent. It's my sister's favorite spoon, too. :(

Calvin: Hey, LeeeeTwaaaan, what are you doing?

Calvin: Can I help?
LeTran: No, just sit here and look pretty, no opposable thumb and knives do not go together!

Calvin: How come you're taking forever? *yaaaawns*

Calvin: LeeeeTwaaan, looking pretty is really hard!

LeTran: Sheesh, calm down! I'm almost done, see?

Calvin: Oh, I see...but what is it supposed to be?
LeTran: A cat looking at the sky!
Calvin: I don't think that looks like me at all! Baotwaan, what do you think?
BaoTran: Looks like something, but not a cat!
LeTran: I hate you guys!
BaoTran: You should post it up and ask people what they think without telling them what it's supposed to be.
LeTran: Oh...ooops, I already said that...

So, what do you guys think? If you look close enough, you can see Hobbes lurking in the background.

Obviously, all photos (save the last 3) were taken by my sister! Here she is. :D Thank you, favorite sister in the world!

Note: I'm not original and got this idea off the internet. There were too many sites to link back, so if you just type in "pumpkin carving cat" to google image you can find more!
