pumpkin carvin' 2014.

Every year that I have been here in Australia, Halloween seems to get more and more common. Young children are starting to grow up trick-or-treating and there are more and more Halloween themed items appearing in our stores. Most older Australian's (and by older I mean like 15 and up) are still a bit skeptical about this "silly American holiday" but I am hoping our two little boys get a chance to experience the fun and excitement of the Halloween triditions. They do have an American mother after all!

In keeping with American Halloween traditions, I give you Lachlan's first pumpkin carving experience!

He was super excited to look at the goop in the inside, but wanted nothing to do with touching it!

Pretty sad looking jack-o-lantern. I think I need more practice and better tools! And possibly better pumpkin options. Maybe next year :)

Halloween night we put a candle in our pumpkin and placed it outside our front door so that people would know we were happy for trick-or-treaters to come knockin'.

We got about 12. Poor showing if you ask me, but we do live on a pretty busy road. Oh well. Lachlan loved the pumpkin and I am hoping to do some kind of trick-or-treating with he and Spencer next year. And Spency says Haaaaappy Halloween



Max's first pumpkin carving back in 2011
