Happy Halloween…

We carved two jack-o-lanterns. The lumpy reddish one had very thick flesh, so we also made a tasty pumpkin pie!

I’m shamelessly proud of the job I did on both these home-made costumes.

Lillian got enough candy to last another whole year, at least. Wow!

I am totally awesome at Halloween costumes

This year, I asked Lillian what her brother should be for Halloween. She thought for a moment, then declared, “A pickle!”

So I made him a pickle. Green fleece, green buttons, and a bit of batting stuffed in the back to round out the pickle shape. Everybody loved it, and only a few people thought he was a peapod.

Plus, they both won the costume contest — Witch got first place, Pickle got second. I was totally stoked.
