And by “we” I mean, me. Adam has never really enjoyed carving pumpkins, Megan took one look at the guts and ran the other way; declaring that she wanted the finished product to be a “surprise”, and Jane just crawled around the lawn eating every rock, twig, and leaf in sight.
I absolutely lack any pumpkin carving skillz, but I took one for the team and did all the dirty work. Megan was pleased with the end result, so that’s all that really matters.
We have really enjoyed the arrival of fall and getting ready for Halloween. Like last year, Megan has worn Halloween shirts pretty much all month. I got tired of her orange and black attire a couple of days ago, and kinda quit dressing her in Halloween garb. I don’t think I’ll have her wear a Halloween shirt every day next October. I miss her other *cuter* clothes, especially since it’s the beginning of Fall and the start of cute sweaters and boots and such.
I tried to be creative with Megan’s breakfast a couple of times, too. One morning I made pumpkin pancakes and one morning I made ghost pancakes. Megan thought I was pretty silly.
