Sophia and I created the first of our three jack-o-lanterns last Sunday.  We lovingly call him “cleaver”.


Last night Mike and Sebastian started on our other pumpkins.  Mike prepped one and let me take over to create a creepy faced jack-o-lantern.  Sebastian did his own from start to finish.

Creepy Face & Scream

Now that Sebastian is too old for trick-or-treating, he used our tickets for tonight’s UMD hockey Halloween game and asked three friends to join him.  Mike dropped the boys off at the arena and came home to escort “Amelia Earhart” around our neighborhood.


Sophia trick-or-treated for a little over an hour and covered the whole neighborhood. She completed a very successful candy gathering mission.

Wishing everyone a happy and safe Halloween!

    1. We came up with the idea for Sophia’s costume by having a look at our closets. I spotted my old bomber jacket from the 80’s and thought it would be perfect for a costume and to keep her warm. We had to buy the hat & glasses, but everything else we had on hand. One of our neighbor’s told us that the “Amelia Earheart” costume was their favorite of all of their trick-or-treaters. I guess we pulled it off!
