Halloween 2012- Our first Halloween in our house! We dressed up like runners (which we spent tons of money on!). Ok, not really. Just headed to our dressers. I mean come on we had to be dressed up when we answered the door!
We had bought “jumbo” pumpkins. We spent maybe 15-20 minutes picking them out at Walmart. My goal was to find the biggest and most round pumpkin. And I did!
Ryan wanted to hold them both. I am not going to lie I was afraid we were going to have some split open pumpkins on the floor. Those things were heavy! Can’t you tell by his face! haha
This was my design I was planning on creating! Thought I chose one that was easy enough…being the “expert pumpkin carver” between the two of us.
Ryan carved this one out pretty fast and easily for being maybe is 2nd ever pumpkin carved! I think he is a natural!
My spider and witch hat turned out looking like this! Can you see the spider on the left side of his mouth? Well come to find out getting the largest pumpkin ever is not always the best idea! The wall of the pumpkin was so thick my knife would not fit though and I ended up breaking off my spider legs! So then I went for plan B: Jack-o-lantern.
Our trick-or-treaters complemented on our pumpkins. They liked them.
An eight year old said he made one just like mine. But then he added his didn’t have teeth. “Phew” I thought. I can’t be producing 8 year old work! ha!
We even lit them up until we smelt something like pumpkin burning.
We gave out raisins and pistachios for our treats! If you can’t tell by the picture I was pretty excited about it! None of the kids asked what it was so that is good, but you could tell some of them had no idea. They were trying to decide if they wanted to take it or not. Our first trick-or-treater came to the door did the splits as she said “trick or treat?” I decided she deserved the treat!
Our first Halloween was a great one! Enjoyed dressing up, carving pumpkins and handing out one healthy treat at a time!
What did you do for Halloween?
