Adventures Between the Bookends
That's really impressive. I carved a pumpkin once about four years ago and it was a disaster. My BF's nine year old cousins looked like a professional did it and mine like a three year old. No big plans. Have a Halloween Party to go to and that's about it. Halloween used to be one of my favorite holidays when I was younger but I feel like as you get older it kind of loses its luster. I think it's mainly because I miss Trick-or-Treating.
I agree with you. Halloween isn't as fun for an adult...Though when I was in college a student organization I was in did 'Trick-or-Treating for Canned Goods.' We handed out flyers to a bunch of neighborhoods a week in advance saying we were coming by during Trick-or-Treating time and to have their canned goods ready. We dressed up, collected food for the hungry, and usually the nice people gave us some candy as well ;)
That's awesome Kelley! I could never do that. It's hubbies job. It's not a tradition in NZ or UK where we've come from. Thanks for calling by my blog :)
Awww! I love your pumpkin! I am going on a scavenger hunt for witches brew ingredients. Two other couples are on my team, and we are competing against four other teams. Should be a blast!
I love the pumpkin! I can't carve them to save my life. I'd probably kill myself with the knife.
I left you an award on my blog :)http://readingwritingandlovinit.blogspot.com/2011/10/versatile-blogger-award.html
Thanks guys! It looks like it was more complicated then it was. :)Peggy, that scavenger hunt sounds amazing. I hope you win. :)I hope you all have a fantastic Halloween!And Cassie, I'll be stopping by your blog soon. Thanks for the award!
I'll be taking my daughter trick or treating - probably her last as she's getting too old for it!
Trick-Or-Treating for canned goods is an awesome idea. I really love that. Happy Halloween.
