our halloween

Here's what Zander thinks of halloween...

In his defense, I was trying to get him to try on a silly dumbo costume that we borrowed from a friend. Guess he's not too big on pop culture. Actually, he loves the idea of halloween, just not the costume part. We even tried making him a homemade robot costume, but that didn't fly either. So, we skipped the whole trick or treating thing. I'm sure he'll be into it next year. He still doesn't even know what candy is, so he's not missing out on anything there.

We settled for making jack-o-lanterns out of the pumpkins we grew, making paper bats, roasting pumpkin seeds and hanging out by the fire. I realize this is probably the last year we'll get away with skipping the festivities, but it's much more my speed and the boy was happy. All day long, he said "Happy Halloween, Mama!"

  1. I'm with him about the costumes. Much prefer Jack olanterns and pumpkin seeds.
