Took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch today, woohoo!
So many pumpkins to choose from. . .
. . . but I went with good ole orange. Three of 'em! And I carved them up, stuck in some stick arms and a carrot nose. . . and voila, it's a Pumpkinman! I haven't bought any little candles yet, so for now Pumpkinman is empty inside. So sad.
Got the house's outsides ready for attracting trick-or-treaters too.
A plastic tablecloth + scissors + tape = cheap and easy Halloweeny windows.
Busted out my favorite non-perishable pumpkins (and a crow) today too, so the mantle is adequately festive. (That paper cut thingy was done by College Girl for Dylan's last birthday. She's so cool.)
Even Lulu and Tuzy are getting into the spirit.
(Not really. Really, I'm just a dork with access to Photoshop.)
Hope I get lots of trick-or-treaters!
But not sooo many so that I run out of candy and end up having to give some disappointed kid something lame like. . .oh, I dunno. . . canned soup?
Have any of you ever run out of candy? What does one do in such a situation?
Turn out all the lights and hide?
