Earlier this week, we carved pumpkins.
I got a white one for the first time and was
excited to see the guts were different.
Miss Allison wasn't so sure about it at first.
Then she really got into it. Jerry is completely disgusted.
We made a huge mess. Its photos like these
that remind me how much I despise my kitchen floor.
I opted not to get political, but thought of something creative instead.
Because central PA is weird, we trick-or-treat the Thursday before
Halloween. Allison was a flower. I found a watering can for her treat bag.
Our neighbor Nicholas was Darth Vadar. I hadn't thought about it,
but I bet the concept of Halloween is tough to grab for first-timers.
For awhile, we hung out on our front porch
and handed out candy. Toby was a bumblebee.
We saw some awesome costumes.
Allison was content playing with the pumpkins. Mine turned out great, but
we had to crack the lid to get enough oxygen in there to keep the flame lit.

The only day it makes sense all year when I call her 'pumpkin'
