This year: Halloween 2012, we did it all again and more! We decided Caleb was older and it would be worth trying carving a pumpkin. But I didn't want him to grossed out and give up on the pumpkin, so we painted his pumpkin first. He helped choose the colors and went with a red and yellow pumpkin. I covered areas with masking tape for the eyes and mouth. When it was dry we peeled the tape and had a great looking pumpkin.
Then Caleb helped mommy and daddy carve pumpkins. He wasn't scared to stick his hand in the pumpkin, even after Daddy made it jump at him as he was about to touch the inside for the first time (Geez)! Caleb really doesn't have too many recommendations about anything. I shouldn't have been surprised that he thought it was cool, but boring. He had more fun lifting the lid (top) of the pumpkin off.
We came home from daycare and changed into our lion costume. At daycare he had been a monkey, but he's a bit more ferocious at home:) Oma visited at our house to drop off treats for Caleb. He got a sand bucket and shovel, bubbles, slap bracelets (oh yea), and a cool new sippy cup.
Then we left for Papa and Nanas. Papa answered the door and we spent time playing with Nana, Papa, Aunt Boogie, and cousin Lincoln. Lots of candy in the house so after having plenty of sugar, we ran it off outside.
What a very happy Halloween!!
