So fun! Having a pumpkin carving contest where there is beer involved is ambitious!

Kat October 31, 2012 at 6:27 am

I really thought we were going to win this one!

Jennifer October 31, 2012 at 3:51 am

Thanks for doing this. I’ve been wanting to do vlogs, but I can never come up with ideas. I’ve linked up, but I’ll have to watch everyone’s videos later. I’m about to hit the road for a four hour drive home!

Kat October 31, 2012 at 6:28 am

So glad you’re participating Jen!!

Jen October 31, 2012 at 5:37 am

You said, “she is doing it wrong”… made me laugh out loud. What a SUPER DUPER fun Halloween except for that bitter country singer guy. It seemed like his chaps were on too tight.

There’s nothing more depressing than an angry, pizza eating Garth Brooks.

I posted my Thursday writing prompt response here —mainly because I lost track of the days and thought this was Thursday & didn’t realize this was for vlog posts. I don’t know how to remove it. If you could do that for me, then I’ll repost it in the correct place tomorrow.

Kat October 31, 2012 at 6:32 am

I’ll do it! Sorry for the confusion…the good news is you’re all set for tomorrow’s link up! I don’t even have mine written yet. Sighhhhh.

Jendi October 31, 2012 at 6:38 am

Yee-haw! I love the Jesse & Woody outfits, and how appropriate that you got pizza. But why didn’t you pick up some Martians at the pizza place? :)

Mama Kat October 31, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Ha! I didn’t even think about how the pizza tied in so perfectly! Too funny!

I think I could get hooked on vlogging! You’ve all done a great job! But no one is as funny, entertaining or as creative as you, Mama Kat!!!

Mama Kat October 31, 2012 at 9:52 pm

You are too kind…such a nice compliment. :)

And I agree, vlogging really is a fun change of pace!

Jessica October 31, 2012 at 9:05 am

Love your Jessie costume, my daughter does too, she was Jessie last year and keeps watching your video over and over.
And vlogging? Scariest thing I’ve done on Halloween. Ever.

Mama Kat October 31, 2012 at 9:53 pm

But you did it! I can’t believe how many costumes you guys HAVE at your disposal. Did everyone finally make a decision??

tracy@sellabitmum October 31, 2012 at 10:50 am

I loved the line “we’ve got a woody..” Cuz I’m a 12 year old boy like that…

Also, your sister has amazing hair!

Mama Kat October 31, 2012 at 9:53 pm

Hahaha! You are SUCH a 12 year old boy.

Darcy October 31, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Like I said on Twitter… I shouldn’t procrastinate! Finally got my video done and added.. will be back to visit and give love to all of them!

Mama Kat October 31, 2012 at 9:55 pm

And the best costume award goes to Rissa! Glad you linked up!

Darcy October 31, 2012 at 10:35 pm

Aww thanks! :) Can’t wait for next week.. I’ll be back~

Charity Deleon November 1, 2012 at 5:53 am

Looks like a ton of fun! I’ve been wondering about vlogging….maybe just maybe I will try it. Your so natural at it that it’s intimidating, lol
