PumpkinsI love Halloween.  I figure we start eating from now until New Years.  During my prime trick-0r-treating years (7-9), I lived in Ann Arbor, MI.  We would go from house to house, neighborhood to neighborhood with pillowcases.  I’d fill it as high as it could go.  The dress up part was always fun too. Carving a pumpkin is also a big part of the pre-hype festivities.

Today we carved 2 pumpkins.  Jess and Em (our older girls) were not up for the experience but Josh was right there with me.  Diettra, my brother-in-law’s girlfriend, had never carved a pumpkin before.  I was shocked, so I let her take my pumpkin and go to town. 

Hers is the one on the right, Josh on the left.  Their debut is tomorrow at our doorstep.

    Unfortunately due to rampant suburbanization, we, in A2, no longer get the mother load! We took the kids out tonight and was rather pathetic. They, of course, did not mind, however when contrasting my near full pillowcase, I was vicariously disappointed! LOL

    Nice to hear that you were an Ann Arborite! The island of sanity in Michigan!
