It looks a little different than normal around here. We aren’t carving pumpkins or handing out candy this year. Instead, we are going to do our first big Family Night since MCG moved in.
I’ll be doing our traditional finger food/junk food buffet while we play games or watch movies (still on the fence as to which, though we may do both). Instead of carving pumpkins, we will be decorating pumpkin sugar cookies. I needed to still have a Halloween related artsy activity or I’d be one unhappy camper.
BG is insisting on still dressing up on some level and will be wearing her Maleficent wings and horns all day. The best I could do was find my fuzzy socks that look like candy corn. I would have done more, but I hate spending any time trying to cook while in a costume. I may still throw something on later when most of that is done.
We are definitely at that point in our lives with how old the kids are that it’s time for our Halloween traditions to start to change. I still love doing pumpkins, but we just didn’t have the time to go get any this year. Pumpkin carving isn’t one I’m willing to give up on a permanent basis. The rest? I think I’m good with some change.
Hope you all have a wonderful Halloween!
