Hi. I've been seeing these guys around my house lately and wanted some help identifying them. My suspicion is carpenter ants, but I can't clearly see the mandibles, so was in doubt. Any thoughts?

Have you gotten a close look at more of them and seen that none of them have easily seen mandibles? This one ant may have had some when it was alive, maybe?
If it takes a long time to grow, remember that if nobody plants it, nobody has it.

Unfortunately not - they move quite quickly and erratically, so its hard to observe them closely while alive.
