This is what happens when you ask my children to pose with a pumpkin.
Or this kinda bad-school-photo look.
For our jack-o-lantern this year, we went quick and easy.
One pumpkin, one dad, one drill.
One black spoon for scooping; which I’ve never seen again. It’s somewhere in the abyss of my backyard. (I blame the one-year-old.) And I regret it every time I want to stir-fry.
Another thing that’s gone missing since these photos were taken is the fancy FitBit watch in the above photo, but that’s another story.
We ended up with a simple orb of lights to add welcome to our entryway.
And for the first few days, this guy hung around, adding authentic creepiness to our front steps.
