Happy Halloween!



This has been one of my lamest Halloween's EVER! I have been so preoccupied with ME, ME, ME (and bebe of course) that Halloween was the furthest thing from my mind this year. Needless to say when I told Rob to bring a pumpkin home TODAY after he was done school at 4:00pm, there was none to be found!!! He called me saying that both Loblaws and Home Depot around my house were sold out. AHHH!!! I refuse to be the party-pooper neighbour that turns off the lights and pretends not to be home. I remember clear as day, being a kid, going around trick-or-treating, thinking nasty thoughts about the houses that didn't participate in Halloween! I mean, how cheap and un-fun can you be??? Soooo...that brings me to the LAMEST, most embarrassing Jack-O-Lantern ever carved... Ha ha ha, we happened to have a squash at home, that Rob had bought the last time we went grocery shopping. I hadn't cooked it yet...so tonight, it stepped up and became a Jack-O-Lantern!!! I carved it at 5:00pm! So the tiny squash was put outside to summon the trick-or-treaters..embarassing yes, but it did the trick as I actually RAN OUT of 100 chocolate bars by 7:15pm!!! So I had to blow out the squash, turn out the lights and pretend we weren't home. It was fun while it lasted though...

That is the most hilarious pumpkin I have ever seen, and it certainly could be one of the best, what with that story you just told! I think you can be excused from Halloween this year! I hope you have fun irregardless. P.S. We have no kids so far (7pm) and I haven't decorated, but it's not my house. Next year however, I think you and I will be writing a lot!

I like the green squash/pumpkin look. You could start a trend. 100 kids?!!! That's nuts. I'll let you know how many show up tonight at our place later.

You are too self-involved... just joking! I kept ignoring Edouard's plea to cut out the (tiny) pumpkin that he had picked when he went apple picking with his class recently so of course, by the time I got home last night (6:10pm), Victor stepped in and rescued the little vegetable by putting his Zorro mask on it!
Christian didn't want to the kids to go out door-to-door since it had been pouring rain just before I got home; he had convinced them to stay and hand out the chips+choco. Romy luckily got permission to go with the neighbors but came home after 15 min. - our (rich) neighbors decided not to give out any stuff this year...
