Aside from the orchard, we keep Halloween pretty simple. We carved pumpkins a couple days before Halloween, which of course is always fun considering our boys are still too young to wield sharp knives. So the boys decided what they wanted on the pumpkin, helped clean out the pumpkin a little bit, and then Daniel and I sat carving away. Leeland decided this year that he wanted a Lego man pumpkin, and Hayden followed suit, so Daniel and I made a friendly competition out of who could carve the pumpkin best.... of course that was up until, mine looked pretty terrible and I no longer wanted my name attached to it. Point 1 for Daniel! He is much better with a knife than I.
|The ladies LOVED the pumpkin seeds and insides.|
They were thrilled! When those first trick or treaters came to the door, the boys were bouncing around, welcoming them, telling them all happy halloween and thank you for trick or treating. It was adorable! And they were SO generous with the candy that we almost ran out. Leeland was even offering to give trick or treaters HIS candy. It really warmed this Momma's heart to see!
Hope you all had a safe and Happy Halloween! It's really hard to believe that it's November! Even this self proclaimed crazy Christmas lady is in shock that we are only 50 days away from Christmas now!
