It seems as if people have very definite opinions about Halloween…they like or dislike it. Which side of the fence are you on?
I really enjoy Halloween, and now with 2 little kids in my life I enjoy it more. One of the main reasons I enjoy Halloween is because it is my Birthday in a few days. But I also just enjoy the creative aspect of the holiday….the daydreaming about what to dress up as, the decorating, the pumpkin carving.
I am proud to say that my oldest son, James (5), has been really showing signs of great creativity this Halloween season. I let him be in charge of all the decorating and he had a blast…I cannot wait to see what he will come up with in years to come as his skills develop! One of the items he came up with is a fun pumpkin to enter into the pumpkin decorating contest at his school. The rules are no cutting, no carving and no electronics, and yes a pumpkin or gourde must be the feature element. So immediately James knew what he wanted…a “peek-a-boo” pumpkin!
So here I present to you, our “Peek-a-boo” pumpkin for the pumpkin decorating contest! Not too shabby for a kindergartener, but I am a bit biased of course.
