Halloween is just around the corner!

October 30, 2009

Tonight M and J decorated pumpkins for Halloween!  Yay!  We also went to our homeschool group’s first trunk-or-treat party!

J scooping out pumpkin guts.

J carved his pumpkin all by himself this year…a first!  He also went back and forth over wether or not the goo was fun or gross.

J's finished product...

I decided to draw on mine instead of carving.  I plan to turn it into pumpkin pie and muffins later…

Sharpie marker on pumpkin is quite fun!

This will be J’s first year of not trick-or-treating (his own choice…).  I’m a little sad but it is a great excuse for a mother-son date night.  We are planning to start with dinner out and then will come home to pass out candy for a bit and maybe go out to a movie.

However you spend your Halloween, and wether you celebrate the holiday or not, we hope you have a safe and happy weekend!
