Weekend Snapshot: Number 8
Although we still have a few days before Halloween, I'm doing my Halloween post for weekend snapshot. Maybe some of you will help me decided if I'm festive enough.I am seriously considering not carving a pumpkin for the first Halloween in my life (well maybe I had some help as an infant). When my daughter got old enough to have her own pumpkin ideas, I got two pumpkins. That way we didn't fight over what the jack o' lantern would end up looking like. She was more of a traditionalist than me. I didn't even paint the little pumpkins in front of the big one below. I bought them like that at the store.
I'm pleased that the Virginia creeper which grows on my railing has turned orange, or partly so, in time for Halloween. If anyone has an opinion, feel free to vote. Should Carver carve her pumpkin or be lazy and go with the blank face look on the big one, and let the little store bought painted ones suffice for the Halloween look? I realize that many countries and cultures don't celebrate Halloween so some of you may think I'm making a mountain out of a pumpkin decision.
I think I may have answered my own question. I can avoid carving and have my creative pumpkin fun. I've already made a bunch of fun faces using this pumpkin simulator. Monday is the official weekend snapshot day so check back at their link for more participants.
