Halloween just got super fun again. Can you guess what Baby B dressed up as? He really didn’t mind the outfit, except it got a little warm. We celebrated with a couple pumpkins, grilled cheeses and tomato soup, and some after bedtime candy.
The leaves are definitely falling, and its time to figure out a tiny costume for the little guy. We always called him a little pumpkin while he was growing, but he would honestly look adorable in anything. Also, our oven has been broken, but as soon as it is repaired, we are so excited for all the baking (like that pear crisp) and roasting!
Aren’t these pumpkins the spookiest? They just get scarier as the pumpkins start to droop!
We carved our pumpkins last night. I am convinced that we are some of the most efficient pumpkin carving cleaner-uppers out there. Pumpkin carving can get really sticky, but that pumpkin smell makes up for it. Hope you have a wonderfully scary evening!
I almost bought some candy corn at the store today. I like about 3 candy corns, and then my teeth start to cry. But they remind me of Halloween, so I still want them for decoration. We still need to get some pumpkins, and then we can get out the rest of the decorations! This year, I added some silly weavings to our Halloween collection. A black cat and a bright moon to hang on the wall.
Carved up some jack o lantern cookies this morning, so we can munch on them while we carve real pumpkins. Gingerbread cookies this time. I made sugar cookie versions last year. Halloween is fun. You don’t get to carve gourds on any old holiday.
We are doing our part of being young homeowners by planning on staying home on Halloween, and being available to hand out candy to the little ones. I feel like its our duty. Without us and grandparents, there would be no one at the doorbells to provide the treats.
Also been up to some sewing treats. I have such a hard time keeping surprises.
The cat bat pattern is my favorite in the pumpkin carving book. I carved it last year, and the year before, and I’ll probably use it again this year. Because I like it, and its fun to say cat bat.
Cat bat is a very simple little creation, so I made up a (very basic) pattern you can find here. Make your own!!! You can add a little face, or fangs, or fancy wing designs. I added a tail to mine. Because he is a cat, who is also a bat. Not the other way around. Possible cat bat configurations are endless.
