Happy Halloween

We had a little bit of success with our pumpkin this year, which is really surprising because we started it so late. Our pumpkin grew to be about 250-300 pounds, not too bad; hopefully, we will be able to get a bigger one next year.

Our whole family dressed up this year, I think that is a first since we had kids. Our two boys were ducks, Brett was a duck hunter, and I was an Idaho fish and wildlife officer. Brett's mom had a Halloween recital/party a couple days before Halloween. We sang a song and had a great time bobbing for donuts.

We went home and then later went out to visit the grandparents.

One tired yet satisfied duck!

Happy Halloween!!!


  1. Those costumes look good on them! Fun times..

  2. I love the themed costumes. The pumpkin turned into a great jack-o-lantern.

  3. Spooky pumpkin but I'm not too scared of the little ducklings. They sure are cute.

  4. I didn't know about your big pumpkin. I need to come visit more often! It looks great - and you guys did too.
