make-believe: pumpkin carving.

October 25, 2012

I’ve lost my zeal for dressing up for Halloween these past few years {though I’m still proud of our James and the Giant Peach getup from a few years ago}, but I can definitely get on board for a little pumpkin carving and treat giving. An ice cream scoop is my go-to tool for scraping out the goop, and this year, I’m hoping to put our hand drills to work for a little polka-dotted Jack O’Lantern. What about you guys? Any Halloween enthusiasts out there?

    I love Uinta's beers, although I haven't had a chance to try their Punk'n ale. Great to see that brewery around the internet. šŸ™‚

    Have you had their honey ale? Hyve? Delish.

    I would love to carve a pumpkin this year! Maybe I will… And halloween used to be my favourite holiday ever but then I moved to London and it's not such a big thing here, unless you want to dress as a slutty rabbit to go out and get drunk – which I do not.

      agreed. the underwear turned costumes are not really my cup of tea, so to speak;)

    I love Halloween! Maybe because I like to dress up and love everything pumpkin flavored?!

    We've definitely gotten into Halloween festivities over here… decorations have gotten a little overboard. But it's all in good fun. I hope the neighbourhood kids enjoy it! Pumpkins will also definitely be carved.
