This was Zoe’s first year of pumpkin carving with a knife all by herself. I love the cupid pumpkin that she did! She loves hearts and always has! Hearts seem to find her… Heart shaped rocks, leaves and misc. things. I have always thought this phenomenon interesting.
We had an enjoyable evening carving a few pumpkins last night. I love this tradition and always will. Something very calming about taking the time to carve a pumpkin. We watched The Great Pumpkin while we crafted. I’m happy to say that the LED strobe lights that I purchased from Dollar Tree are nice. Very pretty and a nice addition to the rest of my Halloween treasures.
I’m taking the day off from stress. I just intend to enjoy every spooky, amusing moment that Halloween conjures up. Zoe has a school dance right after school and then trick or treating. I have been doing her makeup for her for years. Somewhere in there I need to feed the kid, before sending her off with her friends. My friend Mel will be taking the kids out. I will be passing out candy.
I’m glad for all of the kids that Halloween falls on a Friday! Plenty of time to really enjoy this fun filled holiday!
Here is a recap of some of the images I have had fun with this holiday…
