doctor who with a fez & amelia earhart on halloween For my last Halloween weekend as a college student, I couldn’t resist the chance to dress up! I wore my new winter hat as part of my Amelia Earhart costume, and Brad dressed as the 11th (and most recent) Doctor in Doctor Who, complete with bright red fez created by yours truly. In case you haven’t seen the show, here’s a really short clip: “fezzes are cool“. I also learned to tie a bow-tie this weekend, what a useful skill! Brad got lots of compliments, since his outfit was spot-on, and awesome, and we go to a rather nerdy school.

Brad and I carved pumpkins, as you can see below: I picked a warty pumpkin, but I think that meant it was harder in general, because it took some hefty sawing to carve! But it was worth it, because I now have the world’s happiest pumpkin. I wish I could’ve found some vampire fangs; I love what Alice did to make adorable fanged gourds (and the post is a must-read… she’s just so excited!).

Brad and Hannah had a contest to see who could most quickly eat a donut off a string… and I’m going to be in trouble for putting that picture online ;) The three of us then painted baby gourds, and got overly excited about their googley eyes.

newly carved pumpkins and googly-eyed gourds!

It was a low-key, little-kid-ish Halloween – just the way it should be, and just the way I like it. A nice transition out of birthday week… and into November? When did this happen?

I hope you all had a lovely Halloween!

    The pumpkins are so cute! I’m glad you had a good Halloween. The most exciting thing I did was shampoo our carpets. Haha!

    I hope you had a great birthday!

    Love the outfits! I’m a HUGE Doctor who fan and I must say nice work on the fez. I made ones with matching bow ties for my son and stepson.
