It's that time of year again....Magic Pumpkin time!!! We have had our tradition of Halloween festivities such as Magic Pumpkins and Sucker Ghosts for as long as the kids can remember. These traditions have been handed down from Morgan's family and we enjoy indulging in them each year.
We love to invite different people over each year as we host our traditions and this year was no different. For FHE tonight we had our Magic Pumpkin celebration and invited over one of our neighbor families. It was extra fun because they are hosting a girl "Sara" (her real name is WAY more complicated than that!) from Thialand who had NEVER stuck her hand in a pumpkin before!!!
Here is a picture of Cassidy's pile of loot!! Yumm!!! I am not a fan of the gooey, pumpkin coated candy, but the kids seem to LOVE it!! ewwwww
p.s. this year we heard many neat suggestions such as, "Mom, I figured it out! You order the pumpkins on the Internet!" (Lund). The adorable neighbor boy thought that I slowly put the candy and money into the pumpkin one by one, and then the small hole I used healed up in time for the "magic". And I even heard the best one yet...from an adult, no less. She said, "you probably use a syringe and put some sort of chemical into the pumpkin that later turns into candy." I told her that the dimes would be interesting and that we might get arrested for "making money".... tons of fun responses this year!!!
