Happy Halloween

Better than average pumpkin carving


I’ve been doing this blog for a while and I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Halloween. This holiday has always been kid centric and even now it’s a holiday that brings out the kid in all of us. They are predicting rain today so I’m thinking that we will get fewer tricker treaters than last year, which wasn’t too many. All I have to say is Yay, more candy for me! But all that aside, I do enjoy some of the creativity that parents and kids put into their costumes.

 Pretty creative costume for a Hitchcock fan

I also noticed a lot of creativity going into pumpkin carving. It is turning into an art in itself. Some are so fancy you can tell that the carvers could probably work with clay and come up with something spectacular. Gone are the days of a pumpkin carved with two eyes, a nose and a grinning crooked mouth. I’m glad that I’ve given up carving a pumpkin because mine would look terribly amateurish if I did happen to apply knife to pumpkin.

 This pumpkins is awesome

I will look forward to tonight’s crop of cute costumes. I know that someone will dress up their baby or toddler and they will look so adorable. It will probably be their first time going out for candy and I’m sure they will come to the conclusion that Halloween is a totally awesome holiday. Let’s face it, you dress up in a costume and go door to door asking for candy, and you get it! It doesn’t get any better than this in kid land.

 Had to throw in a couple of cuties

So enjoy your Halloween and don’t let the little goblins cause too much havoc. If it rains sit by the fire and eat some candy. I’m sure there is a monster movie marathon on TV somewhere, the Syfy channel is a good one for that. If you’re going to a party, keep it safe, there are a lot of crazies out there. Any way you carve it or dress it up, have a Happy Halloween!
 
Happy Halloween all!
