How hard can it be to carve a pumpkin?

by Traci Schumacher on Fri, 11/01/2013 - 1:47pm

For some reason I waited until Wednesday, the very day before Halloween, to attempt the carving of the pumpkin. The kids were excited, the table was covered with newspaper, the carving set was ready. Knife in hand, I commenced the cutting. Only this pumpkin had other ideas.

What the kids want to be for Halloween

by Traci Schumacher on Thu, 10/04/2012 - 10:28pm

Have you gotten your kids' costumes for Halloween yet? I keep asking my kids what they want to be. Sometimes I think that's a mistake. Maybe it would be better to simply offer a couple of choices and have them pick one. But I'm pretty sure that wouldn't work either.

So my daughter wants to be a lemur, of course, because we just went to the South Carolina Aquarium and saw lemurs and they were oh-so-cute. And my 6-year-old son wants to be a white mouse in honor of his cousin's mouse that died that he never met, naturally.

Well, the Halloween festivities are upon us. We took the kiddos to Patchville at Savannah Christian Church Wednesday evening. It's the church's annual family-friendly Halloween alternative party. Our gang had a great time, of course, along with about a zillion other kids. They came home with more candy than I'll let them eat in the next week, and it's not even Halloween yet!
