A "Lame-o" Halloween

Our 9 year-old didn't want to go trick-or-treating this year. The reason, he said, is "Kids get all kooked up on sugar and then the adults can't take that." He couldn't think of a costume, and I wasn't gonna push it. It's okay. We have a had an extroardinarily busy couple of weeks anyway.

What's more, he developed a migraine in school after eating M&Ms.

Sarah was disappointed not to have a little brother as an excuse to get out and see a trail of cute kiddoes
dressed up.

But she carved a pumpkin for the fun of it.

I set it in a planter. Behind that, in the corner of the porch, is my
mode of transportation.

A few children came by for candy, as did some teen girls dressed
like tramps. It's hard to give candy to kids after they're
a certain age. I think 15 is a bit past the cut-off age, don't you?

So this October 31st came and went without much fanfare.
Sarah called it "lame-o."

But we do have a cute little pumpkin family, don't we?

Yes! The pumpkin family is cute!
I just gotta say that "Halloween is NOT the way it used to be when we were kids"!
