Traditions are something that Tim and I really want to establish for Liam. Yet, it's been something that we have struggled with, except for Halloween. Just last night we held our 4th Annual Pumpkin Carving party. And, the weekend before we went to make paper lanterns at a local art collective called, The Creative Alliance. It was our second year in attendance and the first year that Liam could make his own. Tim and I made ours out of bamboo and they had cardboard ones that were partially assembled for the wee set.

Liam also dug into a pumpkin this year. Since he's mess-on-his-hands adverse, I was super stoked to see that he wanted to be part of "gut" removal. Then the paparazzi arrived and he had to leave, he has a rep' to protect and all. :)

Wrapping up our weekend, we went for a walk around the neighborhood to check out all the fun decorations. We talked about trick-or-treating and Little Dude is very very excited that simply uttering "Trick-or-Treat" will get him "CANDY!!!!!" next weekend.

We're looking forward to a Halloween fun filled week. Dress up day and party at school, bonfire at a friend's, party at a play group, ZooBoo, and of course Trick-or-Treating!

Have a Boo-ti-ful week!


  1. Fun! We always go trick or treating down Main Street of our tiny town. All the businesses give candy and coupons. Last year, we hit the neighborhood, but this year we're going to a carnival at school. They are doing "Trunk or Treat" and a drive-in movie. I honestly think I'm more excited than Dean.:)

  2. I am sorry we missed the pumpkin carving but I am glad you guys had a great time!

  3. @ Jen: It's so easy to get more excited than them. I love the Trunk-or-Treat and a drive-in movie. In fact, I'm kind of jealous. :) Have a great ime.

    @ Lizzy: We missed you too!
