This week has been so much fun, from a party at the library to Soren's first trick-or-treating, to carving our first pumpkin together. We've certainly gotten a lot of use out of the Cat in the Hat costume.
Soren had more fun playing with the pumpkin guts than coming up with an idea for a jack-o-lantern face
He kept calling the pumpkin innards "spider webs"--perfectly fitting for the holiday.
I dressed as a garden gnome, which was cheap and easy. I just threw together some of my clothes, added a wide leather belt, and made a posterboard hat that I covered with fabric I had around the house.
Soren looks like he's in pain, but that's just his "cheese" face.
We went to a pizza party at a friend's house, then went trick or treating with the kids. It was fun, and S had a good time getting (and trying to eat) all the candy.
Trick-or-treating ended early when he started wading through people's bushes, trying to step on porch pumpkins, and finally pulling out a bunch of dog training flags from someone's yard. Sigh. The challenges of an energetic little boy (hopped up on candy, no less).
Wishing you a safe and happy Halloween, friends!
