Happy Halloween!

Today we will celebrate Halloween with the Little Man. Hopefully, he will wear his lion costume and have fun with his cousins trick-or-treating. Time will tell. This past weekend, we started the celebration, however, by picking out a pumpkin to decorate, decorating said pumpkin, and attending Halloween at the Zoo. Here are some photos to tell the tale:

First, Saturday morning, S and LM set out to find some pumpkins while I was taking some photos for a friend. We remembered a church up the way had a pumpkin patch, so they headed there to see if they had any left. In fact, they DID. S shot a few photos of the occasion with the small camera.

The next morning - decorating the pumpkin.

I found some foam Halloween stickers at Jo-Ann's on clearance. I had been trying to think of a way to "decorate" a pumpkin with the boy that would be age appropriate. I decided decorating the pumpkin with stickers would be something he could do, so I bought them and finally yesterday we got around to decorating! At first, the boy wasn't so sure. But then he TOTALLY got into it. It was fun!
