It started with me sending a surprise Halloween lunch with my son.
(Thank goodness school was serving something he hated).
We had a ghost PB sandwich, a mummy juice box (made with white electrical tape and googly eyes....(Make sure remove the straw and punch a hole through the tape or they won't be drinking your awesome creation!)
carrots, little pumpkin orange, and "pumpkin poop" (aka cheese balls) and peeps for dessert.
While my son was at school, I got to work on the house.
"X" marks the spot to the Halloween booty!
Here's what it looked like at night...
And yes, we don't give out candy. Having a sign out front really seemed to keep teenagers away this year.
But here are our final pumpkins....
Above is my son's rendition of a cannon ball splintering wood. Pretty good considering he carved it all by himself.....with the need of a band-aid only once.
I had to re-carve my pirate ship...the other one didn't survive longer than a week...unlike the pirate skull one seen above. (Almost 2 weeks alive, baby!)
And here is the Jack Sparrow pumpkin. He turned out pretty well also and people thought a machine had made it. Nope! My blistered fingers did! At least I'm done for another year!
Hope your Halloween was fun, too!
Excuse me now while I go and pillage a Snickers from my kid's treat sack. Arrrgh!
