Pumpkins and Costumes

Happy Howl-o-ween everyone!

So the 3 things we know when our families start luggin' in those big orange stumps into the house are:

1. they smell funny
2. we lick 'em anyway and they taste like dirt
and 3. costumes are to follow.

Yup. It's that time of year again when all of our Moms, (well it seems mainly the Moms) love to go shopping, find the most ridonkulous thing they can find, put it on us and pull out the cameras. Hmph. At least we get treats. We're not sure why we don't get a say in our costumes, but this year Mom leveled with us and got us simple costumes. Thank Dog!

-Can you tell what we are? We're Jokes.

::Swisher shakes head in disappointment::
-Nooo Oak, we're JOCKS!

My neck is a little bit missing in this photo.
But I'm playing into my costume. A Varsity Football Jock.

Mom said this could be my professional senior photo...
...with my letterman jacket.

You're looking at two MVP's...

Our Team? The K-Nines, of course.

And those pumpkins we were talking about, we didn't get to eat any of it, so we let Mom and Aunt V handle all the carving. Mom comes up with the concepts, Aunt V does the carving. But Mom helps. And we help clean the floor if anything falls. Bol.

Can you try and guess what our theme is this year?

Hint #1: Cherries.

Hint #2: Ghosts.'s PACMAN!

We're looking forward to handing out candy and seeing all the kids with cool costumes. Hope everyblogger has a fun and safe Howl-o-ween! Eat as much candy as you all can!

Lots of sticky licks,
Oakley and Swisher


  1. Hey there, fellas! Now that's whut I call costooms! Ya look great!

    An' I like the packins. Er, I mean pumpkins.

  2. I love your costumes! I was going to be a jock, too, but than Momma decided to buy me some other costumes, none of which I am going to wear. We will see who wins the costume war!

    I love your Pac Man pumpkins! I was hoping to carve my pumpkin today but I just don't think it's going to happen. I see myself napping more than carving today!


  3. Oh we love your costumes, adorable

  4. Ohhh...your varsity jackets are SO COOL! They will keep you nice and toasty when it turns chilly too!

    LOVE the PacMan theme!!!! Mom tried to explain it to me (she used to be on the "high score" board at the roller rink back around 1982-ish). It just sounds like some wacked out dude on pills with munchies!!!

    Happy Halloween boys!


  5. You two look so handsome in your letter jackets!!! You're sure to break hearts!!

    Momma was all about your PacMan pumpkins!!



  6. Your Moms are really creative!!! MVPs - Most Valuable PUPS, right?! Adorable! And Pac Man Pumpkins? Genius! Hope you got LOTS of TREATS!
