Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy

 

Happy Halloween

Nothing special goin on, except my daughter has discovered pumpkin carving. I think she did really well for a first attempt





When we lived in Chesapeake, we had neighbors who loved to terrify little kids. Their teen age son would lay on the lawn and jump up as the kids came up the dive way. Most of the younger children wouldn't go near the place. My eight year old daughter just climbed over the "dead bodies" and headed in for the goodies. She told me, you know it is fake blood. Ahh you can take the kid out of New York, but you can't take the New York out of the kid :-)
The first Halloween, I put some candy in her bag to get her started. As her father was at sea, I stayed home to dole out the goodies and she went with a neighbor. After a half hour they brought her home. She refused to go up to the door, because she thought she had to Give them candy. Once she got it into her head that SHE was the one who GOT the goodies, she never looked back

Wow, she's pretty talented with a knife!

LOL, loved the first Halloween story. Today will by Miss M's first, it'll be interesting to see how it goes. I've been telling her what to expect, although I don't think it'll sink in until she sees that "giving" happens at our house, and that "getting" happens when she goes door to door. I hadn't thought of putting something in her bag to get her started, I'll think about it in another hour when we get ready to go.

I hope Miss M loved trick or treat, Marie.
Dawn carved two more pumpkins. I think she took pictures. Hope so, cause the pumpkins went out in the trash this morning :(

Wow, your kid is quite a thinker. The apple doesn't fall..., as they say.

She did a fabulous job on the pumpkins!
