Apparently the 5th pumpkin in "5 Little Pumpkins" says, "I'm ready for some fun," not "It's Halloween Fun." And I thought I was such a good mom for teaching him holiday appropriate rhymes! He picked up "Halloween Fun" as quickly as he did trick or treating, and has been saying all month, "Halloween Fun?" Poor kid is going to be terribly confused in preschool next October.
We have had
lots of that Halloween fun this year. Beside making all our decorations
(various kinds of paper Jack o Lanterns with eyes in interesting
spots), we got to go to our church's Halloween party all dressed up.
This year, we were all facets of our personality. Can you figure out what everyone is and why?
the cowboy [his ranching past]; Jackson the "Track Star" [who will
never stop running]; Allie the cute little Pumpkin; and I am opera
singer [bonus points if you know the character's name]
Mark was a bit sick for pumpkin carving night, so Jackson and I took it on with enthusiasm.
Jackson drew his own face right on the pumpkin, and Brunhilde made a second appearance this Halloween.
For sure the highlight of the month, was watching two 2 year olds trick or treat. It was pretty much straight "Halloween Fun."
Lilia the Lion, joined Jackson the Track Star in pounding on doors in
our neighborhood [every door received multiple enthusiastic knocks from
both kids]. They both would have been satisfied with the first candy
they got, but the parents enjoyed watching their total innocent faces
figure this thing out. Should have video taped it. Jackson now requests
to go "trick or treating" everyday. Who could blame him?
cute little pumpkin was not as excited about the holiday, but she
thankfully fell asleep for the door to door excursion which made
everyone's life easier.
of the candy has been consumed by the resident cowboy, but even without
the candy, everyone but the pumpkin can't wait until next year's
Halloween FUN! [As I wrote this Jackson continued to say that line, and ask if he and Lilia were going trick or treating tonight.]
