Friday night I had friends over for Spook Night where we carved pumpkins, ate pizza, drank sparkling cider and peppermint chai, had pumpkin cake and watched a zombie movie (none other than Shaun of the Dead). It was a blast. Heidi was really well-behaved - I'm so proud of her! Turns out she likes pumpkin!
Here is a photo of those who carved (or skinned) pumpkins. Heather carved and painted cover art from a Pink Floyd album; Matt & Joan skinned a baby pumpkin with a "disapproving" emoticon; and I carved a spider! (By the way, they make flameless tea candles that last 75 hours now!)
