Is there such a thing?
I groaned when the little jammers picked a pumpkin design for me to carve. Every year I hack away with a huge kitchen knife trying not to A) saw off a thumb or B) cut through vital bits of pumpkin. Every year I vow to buy a better tool for next year.
Disappointed with this years effort compared to pumpkins past.
The full moon was looking lovely through the trees last night.
We headed to Abbotsbury Sub Tropical Gardens for the floodlights and Halloween fun. I overdid it on photos last year so just a couple of the creepy crawlies.
Much of today has been spent with the jammers making decorations for the porch and recording spooky sounds on the laptop. Eldest jammer had a plan that she would cunningly hide a speaker in the recycling box and as trick or treaters come down the drive scare them with spooky sounds!! I love how they're both so resourceful and the only thing I've had to buy is the pumpkin (due to rubbish year in the garden).
Not sure what the visiting trick or treaters make of it all but my girls have certainly had fun.
Time to drag them upstairs now. I know as soon as I do the bell will ring and I'll answer it to teenagers who haven't dressed up and grunt 'trick or treat'. I shall have a supply of plastic toys ready to offer!
