Introduction: Infant Pumpkin Costume

Picture of Infant Pumpkin Costume
  1. Carve Jack-O-Lantern
  2. Cut larger than normal hole on top, and two small holes on bottom of pumpkin
  3. Insert child in plastic bag (much to horror of onlookers)
  4. Place child in pumpkin, smilling madly to convince her this behavior is normal
  5. Jack-O-Lantern stem hat is optional
  6. Leave party quickly once someone finally calls child protective services

Add some rope and it's a Halloween baby swing!

That might require a bit of structural reinforcement. ;)

Jesus, she's cute. Even cuter wearing pumpkin pants.

Also, can I just say that I love the insane person commenting on the post on CRAFT? If someone does call protective services, it was probably that loon! :P

Oh, goodness me, that is absolutely hilarious, genuinely laugh-out-loud.

It lightened a grim day.

I trust this is the start of a life-long starring role on the site?

Tooooooooooo cute!!!!! :0)!!!!! Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving!

Here's a finger play I used to do when my children were young (author unknown)


Three  little pumpkins sitting on a gate

The  first one said "oh my it's getting late!"

The second one said "let's run and run and run!"

The third one said," It's Halloween fun!"

Shwwooosh went the wind
and (clap hands together) out went the lights,

And the three little pumpkins rolllllled out of sight!
