I'm giddy with excitement for tomorrow! Each year, I enjoy Halloween more & more. I love the planning & executing of the costumes. I love babies learning how to say "trick-or-treat" for the first time. I love the massive amounts of candy every where, for me... not the kids. I love the crispness of the weather, and the very last few leaves falling off the trees. So yeah, pumped for tomorrow. Especially Liam's little Halloween program at school.
As per tradition, tonight we carved pumpkins. I have always loved doing them the night before Halloween, so that they are still fresh for the actual holiday. While Liam really wanted to carve his own, he still allowed Conor to have knife duties this year. But he did attempt to draw his own face on his pumpkin, and it was the cutest set of scribbles I ever did see.
While the boys pulled the "goop" out, I sifted through it all to find the seeds. I love roasting them just like my mom always did. Except I add Worcestershire, a necessary ingredient! Liam didn't want to get overly messy by any means, and Finn was content to just play with the tops of the pumpkins and move them all around. While the kitty cat was my personal design, I'm pretty sure it was Finn's favorite. My carving skills are no good, so I handed it off to Conor after a good 10 minute effort. I'll stick with roasting, that I am amazing at!
Fun was had by all. The boys are asleep in some festive jammies.
And I'm sure we'll be eating candy for breakfast! Happy Halloween everyone!
