So, we're pretty much ready for this evening - all decorated, cupboard stocked with treats for the little ghouls who turn up on the doorstep and pumpkins carved. Though Johnny is very insistant that his is, in fact, a plumpkin.
Coffee Lady ratted me out in my crafty preparations by asking about the involvement of the children after my last post. Rumbled. They may eat the food, but the joy of the preparation has been all mine. A self confessed craft-control-freak, I freely admit, my favourite kids crafts are the ones that I do without the kids. But please note the hands in the picture above. Mark's. In fact for the first time this year, he did his whole pumpkin all by himself. Are you impressed at my levels of self control?
Admittedly, I did still do the scooping of Johnny's for him (only because he tells me he doesn't like sticking his hand inside) and the sharp utensils bit. But I swear he drew on the design all by himself.
