Behind the curve, as usual
I hope all that observe it had a lovely Halloween. We went a bit Martha Stewart this year and carved haunted houses instead of scary faces. It always ends up that the children draw their desired patterns on the pumpkins and I end up scooping out the pumpkin guts and wielding a not quite sharp enough knife while they wander off, distracted by shiny things. We even had our own pumpkins ready to carve but in the end they were just a teeny bit small so they'll end up as pie one day this week.
We went to a huge party with my sister and her family, and bagged quite a lot of sweeties, but not so many that Tiny Small couldn't scoff them all while my back was turned. Little monkey. She didn't give me a single one!
