Delayed Gratification

So, I promised you Halloween pics, and here they are, about 17 days late. This is the cake I made for the party. It's supposed to look like a grave. Heidi is my awesome friend who used to have terrific Halloween parties. I mean, she had "finger" snacks, a dead person rising out of the tub when you closed the bathroom door, the whole 9 yards. But then she moved to Fairbanks, and well, the rest of us knew we couldn't compare. This cake is supposed to be a grave. It's pretty lame. But I had good intentions!

I also carved a pumpkin. I thought it was pretty awesome.

Do you recognize it? Does it maybe look like this guy?

(If you don't know who this is, you are banned from reading this blog again until you watch The Goonies. Seriously. Now go!)

Here's another picture of my pumpkin, so you can see his ears. Because his ears are the best part.

In other news, I got a haircut. With bangs. I really want to post a picture of them on here soon, but by the time I get to it, my bangs may be grown out. Hopefully not.

Also, I may not post a lot for a while because I am trying to cram in my last bit of school in before Thanksgiving, when we leave for NEW ZEALAND!!!! Yay!! I am super excited, although our trip isn't planned to the level I would prefer. But it will be summer, and it will be exciting, and it will be NEW ZEALAND!!! so it will be awesome.

I promise promise promise, that if I don't post before our trip, I will definitely post pics afterwards.

I love your cake and pumpkin! They look great, yet scary!

I hope you post before you leave, but if not, have an awesome trip. I am so, so jealous. It isn't even winter yet, and I am ready for some warmth. We got our first snow yesterday and it seems like it's only been a month since our last winter!!!

Take care and have fun!

Thanks henna! I know what you mean about winter...our summer was so rainy and cold, it was basically non-existent.
