Oh, let’s see these days time just keeps ticking on and I’m realizing quickly that I’m forgetting to do the blogging I hope to do just to commemorate this time in my life. I mean five years from now things will be drastically different. In five years I ‘ll have a pre-teen. Ugh!!! So writing it all down, taking pictures, remembering the “now” will help me appreciate it later.
We’ve had fun the last few weeks. It’s been busy but really when isn’t it busy? Even the weekends are busy, birthday parties, yard work to winterize it for the impending snow, football.
At any rate, we carved pumpkins last week and roasted some pumpkin seeds. My husband did a great job at Jack Skellington. By the way, when are you supposed to watch “The Nightmare Before Christmas”? Halloween or Christmas?
I think my husband did a good job at carving Jack Skellington here, don’t you think?
We decided for the first and last year ever to roast pumpkin seeds. I found a good recipe on Pinterest and it tasted great, but I soon discovered I’m not a big fan of pumpkin seeds, so unless my three-year-old begs me to, we probably won’t do it again. No one else was really interested in them, but I could not get Braidy to stop eating them. I had to cut him off so many times. Jaydon tried his hand at scooping out the seeds, but found it too gross for him and asked dad to take back over. 😉
If you do love roasting pumpkin seeds though, we basted the seeds with melted butter, honey, cinnamon, sugar, and salt, then roasted it in the oven for an hour at 310 degrees.
Also, this was the first year my oldest decided not to be some superhero. I was so excited when he said he wanted to be a police officer. Braidy was “Miles from Tomorrow Land”, it’s a Disney Junior show that he has been obsessed with lately.
And of course, Hunky Hubs and I walked around our neighborhood trick or treating with the kids in last year’s Halloween garb. We were pirates. Last year we had the privilege of trick or treating at Disneyland and got to enjoy Mickey’s secret Halloween party where they closed the park to all non-VIP guests. My son and husband got to ride the Rocky Mountain railroad ride like 4 times without having to get off and get back in line. It was so fun! I’d totally go again over Halloween.
Hope you had a happy and safe Halloween!
