Happy Halloween!

But first let's have some carrot cupcakes! They're unadorned in this picture, but I think you can sense their media transcending goodness from the screen.

Also pumpkin muffins! Yes!

Dominic is nearly finished tiling our sunroom. Here's what it looks like without grout.

We do it up in style at the Gaskin residence. The plastic lawnchairs we use inside are spray-painted with pretty colors.

Okay, Halloween party. Go!

J. as your typical abused housewife. His lovely wife, Sonja, looks on.

Hey, someone invited the Spartan cheerleaders! Awesome!

Dominic and I didn't get the memo that we wouldn't be cool unless we wore themed couples costumes. Mark and Lindsey, however, did.

Guess who Dominic is. Yes, that's a rockin' costume.

Your Pimms challenge has been accepted, Brooke! The world is all topsy-turvy now.

Sweet Juicy Asian Pears, Batman!

Saturday we went apple (and pear) picking in Nebraska City. Hooray!

How Freaking Crazy is This?

I think we have a gopher.

He lives underneath our back deck.

Dominic finally got his Nikon D80 (!) and as he was taking pictures outside he came face-to-face with the aforementioned rodent. He told me his internal monologue went a little something like this:

"Holy crap! What is that? Kate will never believe this. WAIT, I HAVE A CAMERA IN MY HANDS!"

Besides discovering we're playing host to a GOPHER (what should we do about that, anyway?), today has been an exciting day. Dominic has been longing for a digital SLR camera for a long time.
