Since I missed Halloween last year I convinced Ty to AT LEAST carve pumpkins with me this year. And we had a good time! I went for the "Martha Stewart" look - now wishing I had carved something a bit more fun - but I actually enjoyed drilling holes in my pumpkin and preferred it over carving out little pieces with those tiny knifes (My fingers can't handle it. They get all cramped up). We left the costume part out (WILL NOT happen next year) and assumed nobody would be trick-or-treating clear out in the boonies, so there was no need to buy candy either. Just the two of us. Happy Halloween!
