All Hallows' Eve 2013

Gone are the days of trying to fit your costume over your snowsuit. [This was a common conundrum growing up in Canada!] This year, we were lucky to have perfect trick-or-treating weather.

Indio was super excited in the weeks leading up to the big night, having picked his costume in September and his pumpkins in early October.

The night before Halloween we carved our largest pumpkin, which wasn't very large. Indio loved planning our Jack O'Lantern's face, but wasn't enthralled with pulling out the guts.

gross guts!

We met up with one of Indio's best friends from class before heading over to Ginna's and Henry's stoop to help them give out candy, our tradition for the last few years.

All in all, a fantastic night, even if one 4-year old boy was over-sugared and extra tired the next day!

How was your Halloween? Did you dress up?

Pumpkin patch: then and now

It's hard to believe we've already racked up 5 years worth of pumpkin photos of Indio. Looking back, I couldn't help but compare my boy from his very first pumpkin patch [really just the display at the Amish market in Tribeca, New York, 2009] to the latest installation from a *real* pumpkin patch in Valatie, NY on our way home from Lake Placid.

Have you chosen your Halloween pumpkins yet? What will you carve yours into?
