Happy Halloween from Fireman Colin!

Here he is at my work, sitting next to his cool hat that blinks and plays siren noises but he won't wear. The cargo pants I bought him last year, so I just added reflective tape. Its too hot in Texas for a fireman's coat, so I made him a Tshirt like the kind firemen wear when they're not all in their gear.

Here is a close-up on the logo I painted on his shirt. (Really should've taken it before I let him eat anything.)

We always have a Halloween potluck at work. One of the other vets made this brownie graveyard. The grass is dyed coconut. Click on the image to read the gravestones; they're quite funny. (Get it? Scooter and Karl?) Peeking up from the bottom of the image is the Martha Stewart Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust, it was to die for:

More spooky treats:

The gruesome twosome on their way out the door to snag some candy!

Happy Halloween!

Colin is so handsome in his fireman outfit! I love all the details you put into it,Jenn. He looks very official.

Anna looks very cute as pablo...yes, I can't imagine trying to make a costume like Uniqua....BUT I'm sure you'd pull it off, your good like that!

Happy November to everyone!!!!!!


P.S. Hope no one has a horrid tummy ache after all the candy. I must say, that when I was a kid my candy was "rationed" over several days(and if I really had a haul- several weeks...

How cute! Jenn, you are so creative. Too bad he wouldn't wear the hat, but at least we can see his beautiful curls.
BTW, it's hard to read the tombstones even when magnified. I managed to figure it out, but you might want to type them in. Funny!

Aww! Colin looks adorable! You know, I have a "friend" who is a REAL Fireman! He even rides on a big red truck! :)

Anna and Colin look so festive! I'm so jealous! I wanted to go trick or treating! :(

Those treats look DELICIOUS! Yum!

Cool Halloween treats!

Even as we speak I am baking a cheesecake. Mine has a gingersnap crust, but no pumpkin. And it's not Martha Stewart, it's the Frugal Gourmet's recipe, which has made me notorious in this area.

Love Colin's outfit. Nice job on the shirt--bet he'll want to wear that a LOT!
