Halloween Countdown T-Minus 1 Day

Halloween Lessons Learned:

~if it's not orange, it's not a pumpkin and won't carve as easily as a pumpkin. It's a gourd and requires power tools~

~trying a recipe from a Martha Stewart Living magazine in the boat oven results in the smoke detector going off~

~whoever thought combining kids and sharp tools and open flames was a relaxing family project didn't have kids~

~if you smash a small gourd against fiberglass both will end up with cracks~

~trying your own recipe in the boat oven results in the smoke detector going off. Ok, fine, maybe it's me and not the oven~

~don't leave glow sticks, scissors, and children alone in a room together. ever. ~

~dark chocolate and kombucha makes everything better~

~guinea pigs like pumpkin seeds~

~guinea pigs don't like being put inside of pumpkins~

~ducks like pumpkin seeds too but they're smart enough to swim away~

~vacuum cleaners break when they inhale large chunks of pumpkin~

~who cares about all that, it's almost Halloween, let's party!~

God, we are so lame. We have a pumpkin. We went to the Sally Ann and Maia dressed us all as pirates, we're going iceskating (dressed as pirates) on fake ice tomorrow.
Then - we're heading south.
