This weekend we went to get pumpkins and then had some pumpkin carving fun! I had the perfect shaped pumpkin. I wanted to make it cute, but a lady here told me to go scary so I tried:
It looks pretty scary when lit:
Almost like a shark pumpkin. Ahhhh! Hehe. I think that satisfied my desire to carve a pumpkin for the next few years.
Another highlight of my weekend was a quick trip to Grantham, NH, where my family lived for one year while I was in middle school. I had free time between driving gigs and it was only 15 minutes away, so I took a little stroll down memory lane. It was fun to see the places I went, my mom’s bank, my school, the lake I lived next to. It’s a very little town but I remember it being much bigger. And I don’t remember scarecrows being EVERYWHERE.
They were everywhere. It was crazy. It looked like people were walking around the town at first and then I realized that it was scarecrows. They are very into the fall/Halloween spirit. It almost made me want to start decorating my own room for halloween but instead made me start thinking about trick-or-treating. I loved Halloween for the costumes and the CANDY. Mmm, every sweet tooth’s dream holiday. Especially when you have three brothers…. all the candy you can rake in! So my trip down mempry lane started at the lake where I canoed and ice-skated and ended with memories of candy-hauls.
The candy thoughts led me to buy some peanut m&m’s at the gas station as my option for the week. Yummm! I loved them. I used to like getting the snack size packs in my halloween candy. I would always get rid of the more fruit candy and tootsie rolls (yuck) in exchange for some chocolate candy. Too bad I am too old for trick or treating this year. ;) Halloween might be overdoing it – no one needs BAGS of candy – but it is nice to enjoy some yummy sweet candy guilt free.
What is your favorite Halloween candy? Mine is definitely the little individually wrapped cute Reese’s peanut butter cups. Yumms. I may have to dress up and pretend trick-or-treat just to get some (they are better when recieved than bought).
