It's the Great Pumpkin, Penelope Rose

Penny helped carve her first pumpkins today.  Linda was totally lame and didn't take a picture of them when Sarah was done, but they both turned out great!  Sarah is going to send some photos of them all lit up with the candles. 
"Ewww.. I'm not touching those pumpkin guts"
Sarah took Penny's outfit off so it wouldn't get all messy, but it turns out she didn't want to get her hands dirty.  At her first birthday Penny wouldn't even smash her own special little cake. 
"I'll just dip my finger in the icing"
Linda had the scare of her life tonight.  It's a good thing she didn't go all Ninja because the law frowns on that kind of stuff.  She was at the gym during regular Trick or Treat hours, so she turned off the front outside light so kids wouldn't ring the bell and get Chimi and I riled up.  It was already dark when she got home.  Her arms were full of her gym bag, purse, the mail and a grocery bag.  She was struggling to keep the glass storm door from shutting on her and get her key in the front door and open it.  All of a sudden there were two big people behind her, one holding the storm door and one pushing on the regular door.  She turned around and it was two tall teenage boys wearing Obama masks!  She didn't hear them come up and she actually forgot it was Halloween for a second.  Turns out they just were trying to help her.  Maybe they shouldn't have picked such a scary mask!
