I'm secretly glad that Halloween falls on Sunday this year. The hubbub of the holiday was confined to a ward party (which we loved) and two school parties (for which I supplied treats but did not attend). We will open our door for trick-or-treaters tomorrow but won't hit the streets ourselves. I'm content with a simple celebration.
Tonight we carved pumpkins at Zach's insistence. Garry, bless his heart, made it a grand adventure. He gutted all of the pumpkins on his own. Then he involved the kids and designed and carved according to their wishes. Garry makes everything more fun.
I think he did a great job! This year's pumpkins included vampire teeth (Zach), a wee little ghostie (Gavin), a princess (Lexi), and Frankenstein (Tyler).
