Our first Halloween

We decided to carve pumpkins together, Ja went with the wicked cut-out because of his favorite musical. I went with the bat hanging from a cave. We really liked our jack o' lanterns. Ja also kept with his childhood Halloween tradition and stuffed a dummy that was holding a pumpkin bowl as his head. We put candy in the bowl and our neighbors loved the treat. We even had a Halloween party. Everyone we invited came and then some! We had a costume contest and lots of food. Our treats were pumpkin guts (spiced pumpkin seeds), frog eye salad, eyeballs (peanut butter balls painted to look like eyes) and pumpkin bread. At the end of the night we watched Ichabod Crane.
