I hope all of you had a good day yesterday. We were fortunate to have beautiful sunny skies yesterday and no rain for the trick-or-treaters. However, the night was chilly though.
My son dressed up as a "cool ghoul". I guess that means a hip ghost. Ha!
My husband took him out trick or treating with our neighbors. I stayed home to answer the door and give out candy. We didn't have near as many kids this year! Guess that means our subdivision is aging. Boo Hoo! I remember when we had our first Halloween here and we nearly ran out of candy. Not this time. Now I'm going to be begging people to take it to work and give it out to friends!
My son didn't want to draw a face on our pumpkin to be carved this year, so I opted for something totally different.
I was going for something like this........
I just wanted random holes cut out all around. So I left instructions with my husband while I went to pick up a pizza for dinner. (We don't cook on Halloween night!)
When I came home, he was feverishly cutting out a million holes in the pumpkin (unable to find his drill bit to make it easier).
This is what it ended up looking like!
Not exactly what I meant, but hey, he just did what I told him. Ha!! I meant for them to be spaced out randomly around the whole pumpkin. Poor thing, he was afraid he was going to be at this ALL night!
Now that I look at it, it looks like a bunch of bullet holes were shot in it!
Max greeted all of the trick or treaters as they came up to the door.
By the way, yesterday was my 48th birthday too!
So, after trick or treating, we celebrated that too.
My neighbor came by and surprised me with a beautiful hand made tea towel. She is starting her own business (outside of her nursing career) making various custom linens. She has a heavy duty embroidering machine and the flowers on this towel were done by her machine! How neat is that?
She is in the process of getting her website set-up. As soon as she is open for business, I will pass along the info to you in case you're interested in her work.
Well, Halloween is now but a memory for 2012. Now, moving on to Thanksgiving!
Till next time........
Thanks for stopping by!
