The day started off with some pumpkin carving.
|Margaret carried her little pumpkin friend all around as Mom and Dad worked on carving the big pumpkins.|
|It received lots of loves.|
|She worked on "decorating" it with a capped marker.|
|She also found it fit quite nicely inside Daddy's pumpkin.|
While Margaret napped (with her pumpkin), Fritz and I baked some cookies and cupcakes for the neighbors. Ok, he baked them while I busied myself cleaning up after him. I did pipe some bats, spiders, and jack-o-lanterns on the cupcakes, though.
|My rather loose interpretation of a bat.|
|My blobby spider.|
|Then I made some butternut and acorn squash soup for our traditional Halloween "Ode to Squash" dinner.|
|Here's our Little Red.|
|The pumpkins came out once the sun went down.|
|I finally got Margaret's away from her long enough to paint a face on and feed him to the scary cannibal pumpkin.|
|We enjoyed our soup while we handed out ghost suckers to the trick-or-treaters.|
All in all, a very fun Halloween!
