We probably did what 90% of other families did for FHE the Monday before Halloween: 
Pumpkin Carving!

Tyson, very interested in the process

 Here are the finished products.
I'm not going to lie, Tyson's was the worst. But we'll cut him some slack, cause he's 1.

Side note: He has been carrying that green candle around with him all morning.
He loves the way it smells.

Also he may have eaten a bit of it. I'm going to be more on top of that, starting now.

Tyson, the mummy

The Young Men and Young Women in our ward threw a little family activity night for the kids. It was a lot of fun, and Tyson even got into it. Here is a picture of the mummy-wrapping contest.

He was surprisingly calm the entire time.

He ended up looking a little like a Muslim woman.
I think he should have won for cuteness alone. But what do I know?

Rem and I have been saying that we should have had more people over to our house before making all of these improvements. No one understands why when we show them our now average-looking bathroom, we tend to talk it up like it was transplanted here from Celine Dion's home herself.

They didn't see it before.

I don't have a before picture of our "patio" out back, but take my word for it, it was crud-city.
 Here's the crew
 Spectating is key to projects like this

 We put Tyson's hand print in the garbage can pad we poured on the side (you're welcome future owners of this home). Also, thanks Weston for your precision in writing his name and shaping the blob that was his "handprint" into an actual looking hand.

Joe just threw his shoes away at the end. We all sacrificed. 
 VOILA! Finished product.
 What the...? How did that get in there?
Oh man, now everyone thinks I'm the type to post cute pictures of this
 kid unnecessarily all the time. 
He must've gone back and added this.

So thanks again to all of our crew, you are the best, I LOVE how it turned out!
