The one time that the five of us could get together was Friday evening. Since the Sounders had won by a shut out the night before, as ticket holders we could get free take and bake pizzas at Papa Murphey's. We did, three of them, something for everyone's taste preference. We ate and then we carved.
Issac's big pumpkin innards were slimy.
Jill was creating a ghostly white ghost.
Tom was inserting "teeth".
Isaac and Tom had a different approach to which way is up.
I carved a variation on my standard happy face Jack-o-lantern, and then took photos. I forgot my camera ( I know!) so these are all iPhone pics. We made do.

Today, Saturday, we were on the sidelines in the rain and then in the sun for the kids' soccer games. Now I'm watching college football as I finish this post.
Tomorrow, Sunday, there will be Seahawks football on TV in the morning, hopefully a walk, and then Sounders soccer live at the stadium in the evening. They made it through the knock-out round and are into the playoffs.
Sometime in there we'll pack up a few things, including our gardening tools and clothes, and we'll be off to Whidbey Island Monday morning. It's time for the fall clean up and tulip planting in the island garden. Staying busy is good, but right now I'm resting.
