I’ve been a bit fractured, and haven’t even started getting ready for Halloween yet. In case you didn’t know, that’s my favorite holiday of them all. I used to pour my all into making my costume, then – after I had kids – I did the same with their costumes, and had a blast doing it. Until last year, when they suddenly grew up and got too cool for dressing up and go Trick-or-Treating. They never ever lost a costume competition, and I do feel a sting of sadness that those days are gone. And now I’m too busy to bother with even as much as a pumpkin. Oh well… but I can still enjoy the seasonal displays around town – or at least the photos of them. These were taken a couple of years ago. So, in keeping with my sentimental reminiscing about Halloweens past, help yourselves to some pumpkin eye candy!
I love all the different shapes, the gnarly textures, the sheen, and the colors! I would have such a hard time choosing, and would no doubt bring home so many of them that no Trick-or-Treater ever would be able to fit his candy-hungry little paws on our front stoop – it would be too crowded with pumpkins!
Another fun pumpkin memory was the one that looked like boobs…
… no matter which way you looked at it.
That’s right up there with a butt-shaped pear I marveled over earlier this fall. Oh well, even though my juvenile delinquents are growing up and leaving their childish ways behind, it is quite obvious that their mother isn’t. I have one week to pull something together. How about you? Are you doing anything fun for Halloween?
